NSAS – Reminder – Next Tuesday is “Bring your Telescope” night

9 01 2019

Hi everyone

One of our popular events is on next week and I know that as you have all been up and about celebrating the holidays with Santa I thought I should remind you that you can bring your new (or old) toys 🔭 to the “Bring your Telescope” night that is on next Tuesday. You can arrive from around 7pm to give you time to set up your scopes etc while it is still light. If you plan to come along can you please reply and let us know that you will be coming as an ATTENDEE or as a HELPER so we can make sure we have the right support in place.

Please note this information is also available through our Forum and can be found here.

PS – also – if you are interested in astrophotography please don’t forget we have our inaugural 2019 astrophotography night on the 29th January – This will be hosted by John Mills our Astrophotography Lead.

Looking forward to seeing you all.

David S

P.S. Visitors are most welcome.
