WE are aiming to include…
Display of society work. Members’ images.
Telescopes. Display of scopes and other equipment.
Book buy or exchange: Old? Unloved? We have a number of astronomy volumes that don’t deserve to be scrapped. Come and see what’s available.
Computer and smartphone programmes. For example Starry Night Pro we will be on hand to show the capabilities of these amazing learning and experimental computing tools.
Have an astro-drawing lesson from Sally Russell
