the european extremely large telescope
by Dr. Aprajita Verma. With a mirror 39m across the E-ELT will collect 13 times more light than the largest visible/IR telescopes today allowing us to peer deeper and further than ever before. In this talk, Dr Verma will describe the developments in telescope design that have led up to the forthcoming era of extremely large telescopes, in particular the E-ELT project which UK astronomers are playing a key role, and the ground-breaking science it will produce.

telescopic topics
These are our members' meetings for which participation is invited. It's a forum to discuss new observations, equipment and techniques. If you've got any astronomical problems bring them along for some help. We'll try to present some themed observing inspiration and if the weather's helpful do a little practical urban astronomy too, so bring your binoculars and telescopes. Guests are very welcome.
