April 2016 Meeting PDF Print E-mail

The next meeting of the NIAAS is on Monday 4th April, it starts at 8pm sharp in our usual venue of Ballyclare High School Lecture Theatre. Directions can be found here.

dsc_0103_20090706_1903381338Since we have so many new members this season, it has been suggested we hold another beginners night. So this month we are dedicating or April meeting to you the beginners. Hosted by our very own astronomical genus Stevie Beasant! We are going to have a range of telescopes on show and Stevie will be showing you how to correctly set them up and how to get the best from them. We will also be showing you a range of eyepieces and other accessories that will enhance your observing sessions!

This will be a very open meeting, so please feel free to ask loads of questions and we will do our best to answer them and give you the advice you require to take this hobby of astronomy to a new level.

Since we will have the telescopes here, if the skies are clear, we intend to have a short observing session on the school grounds after the meeting!

So if you are new to Astronomy or know someone who is, please bring him or her along to this meeting. I'm sure, even the old hands will learn something new on the night!

We look forward to seeing you all at this meeting!

If you were at last months fantastic meeting by Dr. Frank Prendergast, here is the link to all his research papers, please feel free to download and enjoy!

Please note: Under 16's are very welcome but due to our child protection policy, we ask that they are accompanied by an adult.

As always the talk is free, a donation bucket is available at the door if you wish to support us in our work! Refreshments are available (also free) after the meeting and so is some good chat!
