December 2021 Meeting Report

Our December meeting was all about Telescopes. It was an opportunity to see the different types of telescopes and how to use them. Michael Hobbs brought along some binoculars which are a very useful tool and some of the society telescopes. He showed us how to use a Dobsonian style telescope and one of the societies goto ETX telescopes. Lilian Hobbs brought along her portable setup which is a Star Adventurer with a Redcat 51 and camera attached. Following the demonstrations several members had a number of telescope questions and brought some telescopes in which we helped setup.

We also enjoyed a few snacks and held the annual raffle which even our online members participated in and Gerard who was online won as astrophotography book
