About this month's talk


How to Get Started in Astronomy

Rob Davies will give a personal viewpoint on the best

way to get into stargazing, both visual and imaging.  

The talk will delve into some of the considerations before

buying equipment, thus avoiding spending money on

unsuitable kit.

Along the way there will be explanations of some common terms like focal length, field of view, plate solving, AZ and

equatorial mounts, along with a host of other considerations to confuse the beginner!
