Community Observatory St Martin’s, Isles of Scilly
We are a small group of amateur astronomers who have just got funding and are in the process of building a community observatory on St Martin’s.
This will enable our community and our visitors to fully appreciate the wonders of our amazing unpolluted dark skies.
To help raise funds we are holding a Gala Dinner on the 6th October 2018 at the Karma Hotel on St Martin’s.
The guest speaker is acclaimed astrophotographer Damian Peach.

We invite you and your Society members to join the Loughton Astronomical Society on the 10th November 2018 to celebrate our 50th Anniversary.
Originally formed from an evening class to teach mirror making, the LAS continues to thrive with an active weekly programme and also organises the Autumn Equinox Skycamp at Kelling Heath.
Our 50th celebrations will start with displays, demonstrations and an indoor planetarium in the morning, followed by lectures from top astronomers in the afternoon.
Please see the attached advertisement or visit www.las-astro.org.uk for details and the opportunity to purchase tickets.
Be sure to order your astrocalendars now for collection at the Convention/AGM.
As part of the 40th anniversary celebrations of the FAS the Convention and AGM is going to be bigger and better than ever. It will be on October 11th, at the University of Birmingham. For more information please checkout the convention webpage.
You can book tickets on the above page or visit the booking page directly.
Member societies have until the end of tomorrow to apply for some funding for your National Astronomy Week 2014 event. Applying is easy, just click this link and fill in the simple web form.
You will also need to register your events at the NAW2014 site, which will also enter you into a prize draw to win a telescope donated by Astronomia.
As you know the FAS Convention is now a Sell Out as we’re up to the capacity of the lecture theatre. However, we are aware that there are still some people from member Societies who would have wished to attend. In past years the hall has rarely been more than half full for the actual AGM, and we accept that this is likely to be the case this time. This means that we can safely consider allowing further attendees to book on a limited basis. Consequently we have decided to offer some AGM-only tickets for any prospective attendees who would still like to attend. These tickets will be completely free of charge, but will limit the attendee to just the AGM and also to the Trade Stands area. These tickets will be easily identifiable and will not allow admittance to any of the other talks.
If any of your members would like to attend on this basis, to a maximum of two per society, then they should email firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will reserve these special tickets for them.
