AGM and Chairman’s Address – 24th February 2005

On the occasion of the Society’s Annual General Meeting our chairman Paul Whitmarsh gave us a short address on the highlights of the Society’s year just past, and then, after coffee, rounded the evening off with an illustrated talk about a trip he made twenty years ago to La Palma and Tenerife to see Comet Halley. In keeping with the retro theme, all his illustrations were on 35mm slides, and the views of the Milky Way and other star-fields were fantastic. In one night’s observing he also managed to catch all the naked-eye planets, including Uranus (at magnitude 5.5).
