IAA New Year Lecture and demo, 9th Jan: ‘Everything you wanted to know about Telescopes’ Dr Andy McCrea

Dr Andy McCrea

By Dr Andy McCrea  Andy needs no introduction: as proprietor of North Down Telescopes, for many years he has been supplying amateur and professional astronomers throughout Ireland with all sorts of astronomical equipment from a complete observatory down to an eyepiece or filter. He’s also an accomplished astro-imager, with many excellent photos in Stardust and our exhibitions to his credit. If there’s anything he doesn’t know about telescopes, binoculars and astrophotography, it’s not worth knowing!

He has agreed to step in at short notice as another speaker had other last minute commitments. He’ll bring along a selection of equipment, as well as telling you all you need to know.

 

 

Doors open about 7.15pm. There is free parking available on the campus in the evenings. Admission Free, including light refreshments. We are located in the Bell Theatre, Department of Mathematics and Physics, QUB - details here......
