January 2020 update

The Astronomy Club met to observe the sun and its sunspots a number of times using the solar telescope kindly on loan from the Richmond Scientific Society, and we tested the new solar finder for the telescope, which proved to be extremely useful to quickly locate the sun.

On rainy days, the club used the National School Observatory remote telescope in Canary Islands to carry out observations of the Moon, planets and galaxies. In particular, Tom Nelson and Alfred Warne carried out most of the observations and image analysis.
