10.01.2020 Members Evening
Campbell-White discussed his work on Emission Line Tomography, and HOYS-CAPS citizen science.

Alan Clitherow showed some planetary images, followed by a few of deep sky objects, demonstrating what can be achieved with your gear.
Ken Kennedy showed images taken with his DSLR camera mounted on a Star Adventurer. Unfortunately the camcorder card filled up before Ken had finished, so apologies to Ken ad a slap on the wrist for Tony for not emptying the card of last seasons movies!  Ken followed with a few exellent lunar images he had taken from a light polluted street
