The Autumn programme is now well underway and the Consett Camera Club is thriving! We have had some great workshop and discussion evenings as well as interesting guest speakers, Graham Relf and Lesley Middleton.
The first competition of the season saw our new president scoop 1st prize… please check out the winners’ images on our competitions page.
Next week one of our members is revealing the secrets of his success and hosting an evening about processing images.
If you are still wondering about joining the club, please do come along and see us – details of where and when are on the website. Everyone is welcome!
Great talk from Graham Relf tonight with stunning pictures of the night sky. Fired up to take it further? His website is http://grelf.net/index.htmlwhere you can find the free software to stack your images of the stars and more.
If you want more of the night sky then weekly updates on what’s up there are given in a lighthearted way by “Eyes on the Sky” on YouTube –https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbr9IU92jSF_bbQgBTRK6nw
You could get a comprehensive and interactive map of the heavens onto your computer from http://www.stellarium.org/. It’s amazing.
Finally, if you want to watch Jim Al-Khalili explain the origin of the universe on BBC4 then you have 22 days to see it on iPlayer athttp://www.bbc.co.uk/…/the-beginning-and-end-of-the-univers…
