AAS

Our inaugural meeting was on the 8th November 2010 and we officially formed in February 2011.
AAS holds monthly meetings with guest speakers.

All guests are welcome!
No knowledge necessary, just a curious mind.

We are able to provide assistance with setting up your telescope or just helping to find your way around the night sky.

AAS is able to host discussions on subjects as varied as Dark Energy through to 'How dark is your sky'.

Come along and get a new perspective on the universe in which you live!

Next meeting Monday 27th February, basic astrophotography

Astrophotography can seem like a dark art to those unfamiliar with the techniques.  However it is a skill that like any other can be acquired but it has a long learning curve and at its finest can be astronomically expensive and technically demanding.  This used to always be true but with low cost digital cameras, for certain kinds of imaging, it can be very easy to do and you may already have the equipment to start making some very pleasing pictures of your own.  This session will introduce you to simple techniques to produce astronomical pictures using smart phones, bridge cameras, digital single lens reflex cameras and webcams (lucky imaging).  You do not even need a telescope!  To keep it simple we will not cover the much more complicated deep sky imaging techniques but what is covered in this session should give a solid grounding for moving onto that at a later date.

As usual the meeting will be in the King’s Head, Cross Street and start at 7:30pm
