Hi all.

Just joined the forums. Will be at the NLO on 15/9 for the day course and hopefully, weather permitting, the evening too. This will be my first visit and hopefully the first of many. I have always had an interest in the skies but never found the time to turn that interest into something more than just that.

Really lookng forward to Saturday.

Hi Bryan.
I did the course earlier in the year, it's a great introduction by the chaps above.
Hide your wallet after though, the boxes will start arriving at your door very soon :-)

Friday evening is our members evening for imagers and observers.
We generally have a coffee, a chat, with a 30 minute talk about something astronomical, and if the weather is good we get out our scopes and do some imaging and observing. We start to arrive around 6-7pm generally but some will be there earlier because they haven't got anything better to do on a Friday :o)

Bryan, the main difference will be that more of the members will be there . If clear there will be quite a few private scopes and imaging set ups to drool over and if lucky have a peep through. Plenty of chat and tea/coffee.
Don't forget to bring a torch (red if possible) and warm clothing.
