Images from BAS

Lunar Eclipse - 28th Septermber

Well, we were very lucky to have clear skies for the eclipse, and it was great to see a good turnout from BAS members and boys from the school. There were telescopes and binoculars in constant use and a number of people were taking images on a variety of cameras

If you have any images from the eclipse, please do get in contact with Peter Truscott via the Contact Us page, and he'll tell you how!
