Thanks to everyone who brought their telescopes and other equipment along to our equipment evening. We had a really good range of telescopes with examples of all the major types of 'scope. There was also plenty of other equipment, including binoculars, webcams and books for people to look through.
Much of the evening was spent in informal discussions around the various 'scope. Robin demonstrated spectroscopy with the aid of a commandeered telescope, a diffraction grating and a box with artificial stars!
Robin has posted some further information here.
