The Journal of the British Astronomical Association, 2018 October

Volume 128, Number 5

Richard McKim reports on the 2012 solar transit of Venus, just in case you cannot wait until the next one in 2117! Also we have the 2nd part of Mike Foulkes’ report on observations of Saturn in 2008/2009, and the Director of the new Equipment & Techniques Section answers an often vital question, ‘What telescope should I give a child?’
