Some communications


Werkgroep Zon - Grimbergen 2007 (Belgium)

The BSO (Belgian Solar Observers) (Werkgroep Zon of VVS) organized a meeting near Brussels on October 27th, 2007. The coordinator, Franky Dubois, proposed one day of communications about diverse works and solar observations. It is the Mira observatory, at Grimbergen, which welcomed this congress.

The communication - in 2 parts - made for this occasion is downloadable : part 1 (equipment, 33Mo) and part 2 (observations, 41Mo)

JVS/Vereniging voor sterrenkunde - Nieuwpoort 2005 (Belgium)

The slideshow that I had the pleasure to present at Nieuwpoort, in Belgium, October 15th, 2005 is on-line. To view it, you just have to download it (48Mo) and to unzip the file. You must have Powerpoint 2003 (or later version) or Powerpoint viewer and possibly to install the suited video codecs (install all the codecs).

These days of meeting were for me the occasion to discover a dynamic association, including many young amateurs motivated by all the aspects of the astronomy. I also spent pleasant moments along the Flemish coast under a radiant Sun and an exceptional sweetness for this period of the year.
