Telescope "workshop" session, 21-Oct

According to the weather forecast it doesn't look likely that we'll be able to do anything outside tomorrow evening, so we'll be concentrating on the "workshop" event indoors - the last one of these sessions back in February proved very successful.

So if you have a piece of kit (for either visual observing or imaging) which is portable enough, then bring it along and show us how it works. We'll have examples of "push-to" 15x70 binoculars, a C8 SCT, an 80ED refractor and a Vixen Sphinx mount, and if someone could fetch a SkyWatcher GoTo mount then we could try to control it via a Bluetooth link from a tablet or smartphone.

Or if you're struggling to get to grips with some equipment, then bring it along and get some advice.
