SHU Gazing Live!

We joined the fine folks from Sheffield Hallam University up at the Norfolk Arms on Ringinglow Road for an evening of talks and telescopes.

Although the full moon and the street lighting were washing out deep sky objects, the waxing gibbous moon offered some wonderful views of craters Schickard, Nasmyth and Phocylides near the terminator in the picture above. We also took in M45 Pleiades and of course the beautiful Venus which is in a waning gibbous phase.
