Sadly due to poor weather forecast tonights deep sky observing has been cancelled.
Are you interested in brilliant Galaxies, gargantuan super-Clusters and gorgeous Nebulae? Then please join myself Braeden Borg and the greatly knowledgeable Lachlan Wiltshire for a monthly night of Deep-Sky Observing!
Each night will run late when the sky turns black, allowing every dedicated astronomer to perceive the vastly expansive universe in a constructive, cooperative environment. Every astronomer - no matter what their prior skill level may be - is greatly encouraged to come down to the Mount Burnett Observatory for a night of enjoyment and education. Also, we welcome Astrophotography to the event with the guidance of Roslyn Gupta! Not only that, but the great 18-inch 'The Borg' Dobsonian telescope will be commandeered by yours truly!
If you are interested, please e-mail or SMS your name and mobile number (For immediate contact details as planned nights are prone to change) to:
Mobile Number: 0449 769 666
Remember, dates may change as the weather (as antagonistic as it can be against our will) can alter, consequently affecting the possibility of the desired night. Thus why contact details are necessary for such rapid changes. Lastly, do not hesitate to bring along your own telescope! We love seeing new people interested in Astronomy and all of its wonders, so make us two happy men and come for the grand experience ...
Deep Sky commences at approximately nine o'clock and then runs on to around midnight (9:00pm ~ 12:00pm weather permitting).
We ask kindly that only red light is used whilst on the observing field and that vehicles are parked along the fence in the driveway, facing north towards the exit.
Please consider the neighbours and drive in and out quietly using low beam only, or better still, parking lights.
