Astronomy on the Green – December 6th 2020

Images of Space taken from Nether Heyford Village Green

“Well late last night I finally got some clear skies (thinking about it, it was early this morning). So, I got to test out the new setup. 24 images (12 minutes )from my DSLR/Starwave scope, stacked. M42 (Orion)& the Running Man nebula.I am going to process this with another program, but at the moment I’m learning – I should be able to get a better image… Once I understand how it works, not exactly intuitive 🤔

Nether Heyford British Legion – Poppy Appeal 2020 – Update

On behalf of the Royal British Legion, Nether Heyford Women’s Section, I would like to express my heartfelt thanks for the generous donations given through the Justgiving site set up by Jez Wilson to help with the Poppy Appeal.

Thank you Jez for your participation in setting this up and for your earlier note in The Prattler.

Thank you to all for the generous donations given, through the site and through donations given personally to members of the RBL. Your donations have exceeded the expectation of the original £80 to purchase the wreaths. I can confirm that I have paid the sum for the wreaths and once all monies are collected, I will let The Prattler know and put the totals in the next edition.

Once again, thank you all. This means so much to keep the RBL helping our veterans.

Kind regards

Caroline Elliott – Treasurer – December 2020
