The forgotten "deep sky objects" will be the subject of the next meeting of Newtown Astronomical Society.

The talk, by secretary Les Fry, will take place on Saturday, 13 April at 7pm. The society meets at The Crypt in Newtown Catholic Church.

NAS Secretary Les Fry has long been fascinated by the “faint fuzzies” or Deep Sky objects and enjoys nothing more than photographing them with relatively simple equipment.

During the evening's presentation he’ll take the audience on a tour of a dozen or so constellations, meeting the more “famous” Deep Sky Objects in each, rediscovering one’s we usually completely overlook and throwing in a few observing challenges to boot.

Full membership fees are just £20 per annum (10 meetings per year), with visitor fees at £3.50 per meeting. Light refreshments are available during the meeting, with raffle prizes up for grabs during the main break, ending with a monthly “sky update” feature by Tony Cook of Aberystwyth University and members visual and photographic observations.
