Didsbury festival June 2019

On Saturday, 08 June for the very first time the society held a stall at the Didsbury festival in Didsbury park. Despite the appalling weather we attracted lots of interest from this well attended event and have decided the festival will become a regular event for the society. On display was the societies 14” Meade LX 200 GPS reflector telescope; Jason’s orrery (a mechanical model of the solar system) and a large concave mirror from a decommissioned flight simulator (used on field trips to visualise the night sky in spectacular 3D style). In addition there were plenty of colouring-in activities and 3D images of astronomical objects to keep younger visitors throughly engaged.
