An excellent evening on Monday 25th March. Four telescopes in operation in mild still conditions. About 40 people attended, a mixture of BAS members, recent attendees at adult courses held at the Observatory and boys from the school. A range of open clusters were observed along with M42, the Eskimo nebula, M81 & 82. NGC 2371 was observed for the first time, a bilobed planetary in Gemini. The Societies newly acquired 12” tracking dobsonian worked well through the evening and a good time was had by all that attended.
