Hello Michael,

I'm interested in the workshop. I'm in the process of setting up a meteor camera, so i'm keen to learn all I can. Please let me know when details of the event are available.

Peter

Hi Peter,

You're more than welcome to attend!

I'm guessing the easiest route for you would be from Stansted with Ryanair? They've flights every couple of hours.

A few other BAA members have emailed me expressing an interest in attending.

If the flights were arriving at similar times, I could collect you all from the airport.

May I suggest that you email me please:   michael [at] astroshot [dot] com

We can then try and coordinate flight times.

At this stage, the venue is confirmed and speakers have booked their flights.

Regards,

Michael.
