Club Meeting

Friday July 3rd  2015 – Club Night 3rd July 2015 – How Do I Become An Astronomer – by Phil Bourke M0IMA

At the TARG club meeting on Friday 3rd July, we welcomed Phil Bourke M0IMA who gave us a talk on one of the oldest questions ever asked of any astronomer, “How do I become an astronomer?” Phil has had an interest in astronomy ever since he was a young lad, a hobby which has grown to the point where he now has his own viewing area in his back garden. I have purposely avoided using the term observatory in this paragraph as it implies a massive structure with a domed roof which opens to reveal a telescope the size of which would be worthy of Jodrell Bank! In point of fact, an observatory can be as simple as an area of concrete which has been installed level and flat on which you can set a telescope with the minimum of fuss. Read full article

    After listening to the TARG net for a few months it was good to finally pop in to say Hi.
    Good net and keep on keepin’ on.

    I just wanted to say a very big Thank You to all the trainers and support team who were involved in the recent Intermediate Course. Your hard work that made it a very memorable and enjoyable event.

    I’m aware that some have commented on the extravagant catering arrangements of the TARG. Well it works for me, radio, good company and excellent food. The club should be listed on the Best of Essex website.

    Once again Thank You.
