Speakers: Dr M. Evans (University of Leeds)

Having a telescope to peer at the wonders of the universe is sometimes not enough. Taking images of those amazing nebula or galaxies might be what you crave for. Surely just buying the biggest telescope with the largest opening (aperture) will be the best thing? But maybe just a little bit of know-how is needed with a hint of physics 101.

The event will start at 8 pm with a talk by Dr M Evans (University of Leeds) titled Aperture Fever - Getting the most out of amateur and professional telescopes. He will demonstrate how telescopes work and the limits that the laws of nature put on their performance through some simple experiments. This will lead on to a discussion how interferometry can create a telescope as big as the world, as well as the practicalities of using an amateur telescope. This talk will be followed by a brief introduction on what is visible in this month's sky.

Booking is required for this event.
