Announcement from Macclesfield Astronomical Society ...

Dear Sky at Night forum members

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to read this message.

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to attend a BAA Workshop this coming October. It will be a great opportunity to introduce members of your community, and members of this forum to various facets of observational astronomy. The event will also provide an opportunity to network with other astronomers and even peruse and purchase equipment/items on display from Stockport Binocular and Telescope Centre, Alpenstock and Aurora Books.

Macclesfield Astronomical Society is fortunate enough to have been asked to host the event, and we have secured an excellent venue - the prestigious 19th century Town Hall in the centre of Macclesfield. Access to the hall is easy, with ample car parking, bus terminus and a main line train station all nearby.

The date of the BAA Workshop will be Saturday 27th October 2007. We would like to provide regional societies with the opportunity to share what promises to be a great programme of talks (which includes lunar, solar, planetary and variable star observing) and practical sessions to help you learn techniques and develop your interest to its full potential.

A press release (and booking form) providing more information is attached.

Tickets are priced at £7.50 for BAA members and £15.00 for non-members. The cost includes lunch and all refreshments (tea, coffee and cake during an afternoon break).

We hope we can count on your support to make this event a success, especially as it gives us a golden opportunity to spread the word to a wider public about our fabulous hobby.

To make your reservations, please print and complete the attached booking form. Please also feel free to provide it to members of your local astro society at forthcoming meetings. If it is not too much trouble, we would very much appreciate it if you may consider placing copies in your local library too.

Please do not hesitate to contact myself, or any of the members of the Macclesfield Astronomical Society Committee listed below if you have any questions:

Andrew Greenwood - <>
Diana Willcox - <>
Malcolm Beesley - <>
Dave Ogden - <>

Alternatively, you can visit our website at <>.

If you do intend to join us, please let me know and we will ensure we thank you for your support. Hope to see you on the 27th of October!

Best regards, and clear skies

Andrew Greenwood
Chairman, Macclesfield Astronomical Society
