Lecture - Weds 16th Nov - Eleanor Edwards - "The Space Academy" and Paul Evans - "Beginners' Astrophotography"

The Moon
 
Something a little different, this meeting is aimed at newcomers and beginners reflecting the substantial influx of new members this season.  IAA Schools Officer Eleanor Edwards will describe her involvement with the UK's Space Academy, and how it relates to teaching astronomy and space science in schools. IAA President Paul Evans will then talk about everything you need to know about getting started in astrophotography, using just your camera and a tripod, leading on to simple imaging through a telescope and a few fun techniques for presenting your work! 
 
Doors open about 7.15pm. There is free parking available on the campus in the evenings. Admission Free, including light refreshments. We are located in the Bell Theatre, Department of Mathematics and Physics, QUB - details here......
