Hello all. Time for another club meeting

When: 18:30 onwards, 12th of October 2015
Where: Thuringowa RSL

Programme in short (see attached agenda for details):
- Usual business

- Telescope show and tell:
Some people have expressed interest having a chance to have look (and try) at the different types of telescope, in order to get a better idea of what to buy (Christmas is coming soon.... :) ) .
For this reason we'd like to encourage the existing members to bring their equipment for demonstration purposes. We'll set them up outside in the second part of the meeting so that people can have a look of what they actually do (and how much work fun they are to use.

For those who have gear for sale - this might also be a good opportunity.

Please post below if and what kind of equipment you are bringing. Anything goes from cameras to space telescopes....

Cheers
Florian

I'll bring my 10" Skywatcher Dobsonian.

Pros:
Fully manual
Quick & easy to set-up
It fits into a smallish car.
Great for star hopping.

Cons:
No tracking.
Useless for photography.
Not much else fits into the car.

A pretty decent intro scope, reasonably priced for those who enjoy hunting down deep space objects.
