The front cover of BASIL shows an image of the Great Cygnus Wall, by BAS member Chris Lee.

Predicted solar activity, solar cycle progression, planetary observing notes, finder charts and rise / set times are reported for October.

Solar activity continues to increase with enhanced activity forecast due to Coronal Hole High Speed Streams (CH HSS) influences - see page 4.

Constellations of the month are Lyra and Cygnus, which are well placed for observing their stars and Deep Sky Objects (DSO).

Visible transits of the ISS for October and November are listed.

13 observing targets for the month are provided, with more details given for M29 (Open Cluster in Cygnus), M15 (Globular Cluster in Pegasus), M2 (Globular Cluster in Aquarius) and Hershel's Garnet Star (μ Cephei) in Cepheus.

There is a partial solar eclipse on Tuesday 25th October, which will be observable from the Bristol area - see page 31.
