Establishment of A Lunar Observatory Group

I was delighted to be invited by the Irish Astronomical Society to coordinate the establishment of the Lunar Observation Group (LOG). As part of our program of activities we are launching ‘Moonlight’, the newsletter of LOG. You can download your free copy here and I hope to hear from you. The IAS is always looking for new members and it is great to have access to their expertise and equipment.
