AGM, Members Images and a talk on Astrophotography by Antonio Filippi





Join us for our AGM & Members Images Meeting together with a talk on Astrophotography by Antonio Filippi.








Antonio’s presentation will give you a fantastic introduction to practical astrophotography as well as providing inspiration on what can be achieved.

In addition, this meeting will include a BRING & BUY stall where you can sell your unwanted astro kit or find a great deal from what’s for sale from others.

The meeting will also include a news item of interest and a tour of the night sky.

For those who cannot attend in person the meeting can be viewed on Zoom. Details will be emailed to members a few days before the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you.


Revised RMS meeting protocols now in place

In order to keep everyone safe we still need to adhere to the school guidelines following the relaxation of rules regarding the  COVID situation.

We ask you to respect social distancing where appropriate, as not everyone is comfortable in crowds.

Use good hygiene and the wearing of  face coverings is a now a personal choice.

We will endeavour to keep the hall well ventilated at all times and this may mean some doors need to be left open from time to time.

1. We will ask you to collect your own chair from the back of the hall and take it to a place in the hall where you would like to sit. This can be either near friends/family or well away from everyone else – the choice is yours, but we encourage you to respect social distancing where appropriate.  Be aware that some doors may be left open to aid better ventilation, so bear this in mind when you choose a seating location. It might be advisable to wear layers ! Sanitising wipes will be provided when you collect your chair for you to wipe down your seat.

2. In addition to the school cleaning regime, we will,  prior to the meeting, wipe down all accessible surfaces including the handrails, door handles and toilets.

3. All beverages will be dispensed in paper cups and consumables (such as sugar, UHT milk and biscuits) will be supplied as individually sealed packs. After use, please dispose of these items in the rubbish bags provided.

4. After the talk is over, please return your chair to the back of the hall where it will be wiped down and stacked away.

5. For the time being, we will not be holding planetarium visits – because the space in there is too confined to safely ventilate it. Instead Richard will do a summary of the upcoming night sky in the hall.

Members will be advised of the RMS gate code nearer the date of the meeting. 

Keep safe and we look forward to seeing you in person.
