    I have now (finally) uploaded newsletter 27 to the HS publications page
    Sorry for the delay – I’m still getting the hang of the new website. Thanks to Emily Bick for sorting me out.

    Over the last few years I have been imaging asteroids named for people I follow Twitter and then tweeting the results.

    I encourage others to join me in imaging asteroids named after (ex-)BAA members who have been likewise honoured. Over time we should be able to complete a comprehensive gallery.

    If anyone is at least remotely interested I could add the ones already taken to my personal gallery.
