8pm Friday 20th October 2017 we have our own Jacquie Milner giving the latest in her series of beginners talks, this time on "The Deep Sky".
So, you’ve got a telescope! You’ve looked at the Moon, and you’ve found Jupiter and Saturn. Fantastic! But what else is out there to see? Come this Friday and find out about what amateur astronomers call the deep sky – star clusters, nebulae, galaxies and more. We will also discuss what is needed to see some of celestial beauties why you sometimes be left wondering if you’ve missed something.
