Local astronomer Stephen Mackintosh will present a guide to Deep Sky observing, including star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, supernova remnants and much more. The talk will include how to best observe these objects along with some of the amazing astrophysics behind them.
If conditions are clear we’ll instead head out to the nature reserve for Moonless binocular observing of the night sky, with the hope of glimpsing the Milky Way from the back end of the nature reserve.
