The BAA Deep Sky Section Annual Meeting has become a firm favourite in the BAA meetings calendar. Covering varied aspects of deep sky observing and astronomy, there is something for both visual observers and  astro-photographers. A key-note talk is given by a leading professional astronomer, and this year Prof. Albert Zijlstra returns to give an update on planetary nebulae research.
