telescopic topics
These are our members' meetings for which participation is invited. It's a forum to discuss new observations, equipment and techniques. If you've got any astronomical problems bring them along for some help. We'll try to present some themed observing inspiration and if the weather's helpful do a little practical urban astronomy too, so bring your binoculars and telescopes. Guests are very welcome.

medieval astronomy: the not-so-dark ages?
Seb Falk will introduce the methods and instruments of medieval astronomy. Astronomers in medieval universities and monasteries refined ancient theories, developed new ways of calculating and presenting information, and above all invented complex, ingenious instruments like astrolabes. Seb will explain some of these and show that perhaps the Dark Ages were not as dark as often thought.
