Public Open Night - Dark skies and Shooting Stars - 5/11/16 (5th Nov 2016)

Start time: 20:00

Location: Seething Observatory

Host: Shaun Reynolds

This talk from Shaun will show you how he achieves his spectacular, award winning, widefield images. From the preparation, to the planning, execution and putting together the wide field images .

Shaun will be showing images from all corners of the UK and highlights the difference you see in the visibility of the Milky Way due to light pollution and geographical location. Shaun says "I think a lot of people have some sort of decent camera and this talk will be of interest and it is well within reach to produce similar images themselves".

At these events you will get the chance to look around the Observatory facilities and, if the sky is clear, be able to look through some of our telescopes.

All public events are held at the observatory. Doors open at 7:30 with talks starting at 8:00, unless the room fills up earlier, in which case the talk will start sooner and depending on numbers likely to be repeated. Talks vary in length but generally last approximately 40 minutes and are aimed at those with a general interest in astronomy. We will tweet if there is likely to be an additional talk. 

Admission is Adults £3.00 Adult members £2.00 All Children £1.50 there is no need to pre book, just turn up on the night. 

Refreshments are available and there will be a chance to observe through the telescopes, if the skies are clear and members with be on hand to answer your astronomy queries. Children are welcome (recommend from about 8 years upwards)
