As a special treat to end our observing sessions this season, we will be heading to IAA member Andy Newmans house on the 17th Friday: Andy Newman has invited IAA members to see his fully robotic observatory near Belfast . This will replace our usual observing session at Delamont Country Park on those nights. He has a fully robotic Pulsar observatory in an excellent site in the Castlereagh hills South of Belfast with an 11 inch Celestron CPC 1100. He has had the telescope fitted with wide angle and viewing cameras which can be operated from the TV in his living room. Dates: Friday 17th and/or Saturday 18th April (ie as per Delamont observing nights). Those attending should meet at Hillmount Garden Centre - www.hillmount.co.uk/ at 8.30pm. If you intend to go, please contact Dr Andy McCrea at firstname.lastname@example.org so we have an idea of numbers.
The forecast is looking great this weekend so please do come along, will be a great night
Hi all, Thanks to Andy Newman for a good night last night, his setup is fantastic, although the clouds prevented us from seeing too much. Andy is happy for us to come again tonight, I can guarantee clear skies too, so we will get stuck into the spring sky in the comfort of his living room! If coming, please call text me on 07808736963
