Subject: Imaging Workshop, Apologies, Radio

Hi all,

1. David Bell asked me to pass on the following:

"Some months ago Jouke de Ruiter put forward the idea to me of an imaging 
workshop, and was instrumental in introducing me to Mike Unsold, who lives in 
Ohio, US. Mike has written a software program called Image Plus, designed 
specifically for astrophotography.
   Since this statement has exhausted my knowledge of such affairs, I will 
leave Jouke to answer any technical queries you might have. Or you can visit 
http://www.mlunsold.com/ for more info. But I can tell you that it is about CCDs 
and webcams and such machinery rather than traditional photography.
   The workshop be run under the aegis of IFAS, and will be held on Saturday 
the 15th of November, 2003.
    It will be held in Athlone IT computer Lab. There will be 30 computers 
available, and 24 places have already been taken up, so we just need 6 more.
   It will cost in the region of 1700 euro to run the affair, so we will be 
looking for about 30 attendees, paying around 57 euro each. 
   Once I have a complete list of participants, then the next step would then 
be to have the interested parties put their money on the table. (Sorry, 
promises of payment at attendance will not be accepted). The money will be sent to 
our treasurer Paddy Brennan. In the event that  we cannot ultimately generate 
enough interest when it comes to the crunch, we will intercept Paddy on his 
way to the pub and make him give you your money back :)
   But, once we have established that the event is going ahead and the money 
is paid, it will become non-returnable, even if you don't attend! You will be 
notified when this Rubicon is about to be crossed.
   Will you confirm whether or not you are interested?
 David"

2. Apologies if any of you got multiple copies of my last email entitled "
Lecture Tickets, Aurora, Fireball, Perseids" - It seemed to take forever to send, 
and I never got a confirming 'Sent' message, so I tried again with the same 
result. And then once more....  If you DIDN'T get it, let me know!

3. While I'm writing, I'm due to be interviewed for "Good Morning Ulster" 
(BBC Radio Ulster) on Friday morning, 1 August. I don't know what time yet, nor 
even what about (Mars, I presume?), but you have been warned.... It will be 
sometime between 06.30 and 09.00.

Clear Skies,

Terry Moseley
