TELESCOPE MAKING
AMATEUR TELESCOPE MAKERS OF LONDON
Holly Lodge Community Centre, 30 Makepeace Avenue, N6 6HL
Wed Jan 9, 2019 - Wed Mar 20, 2019
Time: 20.00 - 21.30 (fortnightly)
Price: £47 for six sessions
Many of us stare at the stars in wonder; some go further and buy themselves telescopes or binoculars to expand the view; others get the urge to make their own telescopes and AMATEUR TELESCOPE MAKERS OF LONDON exists to fulfill that need. Imagine the thrill of stargazing through a telescope of your own making. CATS is nationally unique and continues in its fiftieth year at Holly Lodge Community Centre. Affiliated to Hampstead Scientific Society, whose historic public observatory at the top of Hampstead is nearby, we have helped many aspiring astronomers to create their own instruments and to further their appreciation of the heaven’s marvels. Course members are provided with all the materials and professional guidance necessary to make a mirror for a telescope and help and advice on the construction of the telescope’s structure, how to set it up and how to use it. Previous experience is not necessary and only everyday DIY tools are used. This is a hands-on course. LOOK FOR US ON FACEBOOK

Beacons in the Night: Mapping the Universe with Variable Stars
William Herschel Society and BRLSI
BRLSI, 16-18 Queen Square, Bath BA1 2HN
Fri Feb 1, 2019
Time: 7.30 pm
Price: £2 members and students, £5 visitors
For centuries, variable stars have been crucial in the study of stellar populations. Astronomers have conducted rigorous observations over many decades in order to understand the physics behind their varying brightnesses. These unique objects come in many flavours, some changing regularly and predictably, with others changing erratically, sometimes lying dormant for years at a time. The changes that occur in a variable star occur on human timescales, making them one of the few astronomical objects whose evolution we can observe in real time. However, these variables are not just fascinating probes of stellar evolution; they are also powerful distance indicators, enabling us to measure distances to objects within our Galaxy and beyond. Over the past 100 years, variable stars have made essential contributions to our understanding of the evolution of the Universe, and continue to be at the forefront of modern astrophysics to this day. Dr Victoria Scowcroft who is a Lecturer in Astrophysics at the University of Bath will discuss the vast contributions that variable stars have made to astronomy and cosmology. She will describe how variable stars are used to create three-dimensional maps of nearby galaxies, revealing new details about their structure and evolution. She will discuss the advances in cosmology brought about through variable star studies, such as Hubble's discovery of the expanding Universe, the discovery that this expansion is accelerating, and what this tells us about the ultimate fate of our Universe.
