2005 Open evening at High Top

1st October 2005

On the 1st of October the Society held an open evening at the High Top observatory for members and friends.

Although poor weather had been forecast it turned out to be a dry and mild evening, and about twenty five people came along to visit our facilities and enjoy this social occasion. We were delighted to welcome a number of our friends and neighbours from Flaunden, who regularly pass our site on the outside and welcomed the chance to see what goes on inside.

We were not able to do any actual observing due to the cloud cover, but we were able to show off our 14” telescope and explain its workings to new members and visitors. We also enjoyed wine and refreshments, kindly provided by committee members.
