DDAS Meeting and Spring Moon Watch - Friday 3rd April 2009

Our main meeting on Friday, 3rd April 2009 was a special one. Renowned astro-imager Nik Szymanek gave a talk on Photographing the Night Sky. During the break and after the talk those in attendance had the opportunity to view the Moon through the Society's Meade LX-90 telescope. Here is a photographic record of the occasion. All pictures are courtesy of Dave Maynard unless otherwise stated.
