The first public stargazing event of 2015/16 took place on Friday 2nd October under the dark skies of Dalby Forest. Starry skies although with some high cloud did not disappoint around 60 members of the public.
Visitors were able to see many deep sky delights including the Andromeda Galaxy, the Double Cluster in Perseus, the Dumbell Nebula in Vulpecula and double stars including Albireo.
Visitors were also able to see some basic astrophotography with a DSLR camera attached to a telescope taking shots of some of the deep sky objects.
The next public observing in Dalby Forest takes place on Friday 6th November. For more information on this or other events, please visit our event calendar.
