Who let the Dobs out?
This week we’ve decided to try something totally different and get you observing in small teams, using all the available MBO Dobsonian telescopes, under the leadership of an experienced observer at each ‘scope. At this time of year there are many inspiring objects to observe including the unforgettable ringed-wonder Saturn, the magnificent globular cluster Omega Centauri, the inspiring bat-wings of the Orion Nebula, the beautifully coloured blue and orange stars of the double ‘h3945’, the superb piece of celestial jewellery known as the Jewel Box Cluster, and the stupefying glow of the Hamburger Galaxy.
You’ll be sure to see something that leave's a lasting impression.
A couple of short talks will begin the evening’s entertainment, followed by supper, before heading outside to view the sky. Members’ Night is on every Friday night and begins at 8pm, all are welcome.
