We are a friendly society of around 30 people who meet regularly to talk about and enjoy the night sky. We have several telescopes and other pieces of equipment which can be borrowed by society members for their own use. 

Throughout the year we meet on the first Friday of each month (except July and August) at 8pm until 10pm at Timperley Village Club. At these monthly meetings we discuss the society's business and have an event such as a lecture, video, slide show etc.

This presentation will show the history of 3D imaging, how to create your own using free software along with seeing the very latest 3D images from NASA and ESA.

Jennings' 3D images have appeared on NASA’s STEREO (Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory) website. He has had photographs in Sky At Night and Astronomy Now magazines, and shown on Granada Television. The Late Sir Patrick Moore once said about his colour pictures of the Moon, “These images have been taken by the Apollo Missions” when in fact they had been taken from a back garden in Manchester.

It hasn't been possible to organise an in-person Open Day, so we thought the next best things was to organise a virtual Open Day and the video (below) illustrates the features of this Open Day. 

It's an Open Day which will cater for all age groups, and it's hoped you'll participate by attending on Zoom (the date yet to be arranged).

This is the line up of the three people that keep this fantastic society ship shape, bringing the cosmos to you, even if the clouds cover it.
