Moon talk went well.

My Moon talk seemed to go down well. I chopped it down quite a bit so I managed (almost) to fit it into the HAS schedule.
The members donated just over £74 to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust which is pretty good going.
Nothing happening now until Orkney in September, if I can find the energy to get there.

Moon talk in Inverness

Doing my Moon talk once again, this time for Highlands Astronomical Society, tonight in Smithton Free Church, Inverness.
I'll be using the World Record Lunar image to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and hope to raise more than the £85 we raised at Moray's Astronomy Club, Sigma in April. Rhona has made "what is generally thought of as the best Millionaire's Shortbread of all" (her words) to boost the takings.
Next job will be to work out what I will be doing at the Orkney International Science Festival in September so I can work on it over the summer.

Back in the saddle again.

Talk to Highlands AS which was postponed in January is now on for June.
Last night I did the talk for Moray's Astronomy Club, Sigma and it seemed to go down quite well apart from me talking for far too long, as usual. The first thing I did when I got home was to chop it down so I don't take so long in June.
I had bought the right to use to Lunar World Record Image to raise some money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. The Sigma committee organised a raffle and I put up a prize. The raffle raised £59, pretty good for just over 30 people, and the club made a donation of £25 on top of that so I was delighted.

No go 'cos of snow

Not much doing in January.
I was due to do a talk on the Moon to HAS but the meeting was snowed off.
