CHRISTMAS PARTY AT CHARTERHOUSE

10th December 2017

We hope you enjoyed the party! There was plenty of food for everyone, and, despite cloudy skies for some of the evening, we did enjoy a long, clear spell with fantastic views of the winter sky. Some members set up their scopes in the field behind the centre, and we also made good use of the 18.25-inch scope, which gave crystal clear views of M42, and tracked quite well.

We also spotted a few bright Geminids, even though we missed the shower's peak this year.
