|The Lovell Radio Telescope was spectacularly
floodlit for the event
Photo by Phil Masding (taken with a low cost Jessops "FasionCam")
||Although Cheshire was 10/10ths cloud there was
a live link to the 2.5m Isaac Newton telescope on La Palma. The highlight
of the images from here was taken with a more down to Earth Meade SCT
(12"?) and a ToUCam. To get this copy I captured frames from a VHS
recording of the program and stacked them in Registax 2.
Wish we could get results like this from home :-(
|Altrincham & District Astronomy Society (ADAS)
managed to excel in the photo competition with Mark Crossley taking first
prize with a Webcam image of Jupiter and Philip Masding getting a
"highly commended" for his picture of the ISS in May.
The society also got one of the live interview features with Paul Clark
demonstrating his home-built travel-friendly Dobsonian - click on the
