Eddy Yeadon has kindly agreed to give a talk on “The Hubble Space Telescope: Restoring the Image”.

The programme to correct severe spherical aberration from the primary mirror and restore the instrument to full performance will be described in detail. A short explanation of the diffraction theory of aberrations will be included.

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO MEMBERS OF THE FLAMSTEED ASTRONOMY SOCIETY ONLY.
