Our next meeting Friday 19th May is all about imaging.  We will start with a show-and-tell session where you are invited to bring along kit/images/anecdotes/advice etc. to share your experiences of astronomical imaging — both good or bad.

The main talk will be on “Image Processing” by Steve Hill which will look under the hood to see what is really going on when you manipulate image data.


Our last meeting of this season will be our AGM, followed by member talks.

Pressing issues:

  • A new treasurer needed
  • Membership card image needed
  • Talks needed

If you can help with any of these, please let the chairman know!

Let us know (mail chairman at beckingtonas.org) if you are coming to the Christmas Social.  This is a fun-filled members (and family/partners) evening and will feature food, quiz, raffle, feel the sock and live music and maybe more.



Our AGM is Friday 20th June.  Mike Witt was scheduled to present his talk “Moons of the Solar System”, but unfortunately he has been taken ill and may not be recovered in time.  We will make alternative arrangements for a talk to accompany the AGM.
