Saturday 1st October 2016 - Deep Sky Observing

Are you interested in brilliant Galaxies, gargantuan Star 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 fabulous, cooperative environment. Every amateur 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.  The great 18-inch 'The Borg' Dobsonian telescope will be commandeered by yours truly during the evening for some amazing viewing! Not only that, but we also facilitate Astrophotography with the guidance of our lovely Roslyn Gupta and experience of various members!

Additionally, the Deep-Sky Observational team has also been granted access to the fantastic robotic telescope network LCOGT (Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network) for high-detailed robotic Astrophotography. Thus, we can conduct research and obtain fantastic photographs of Deep-Sky objects rain, hail or shine.

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.
