Dear enthusiastic Deep-Sky Observers,
Ladies and Gentlemen, I have some good news pertaining to the expansion of my illustrious Deep-Sky Programme; We will be welcoming Astrophotography to the event with the guidance of our lovely Roslyn Gupta! Not only that, but the great 18-inch Dobsonian telescope (Name suggestions are desired) will be commandeered by yours truly for the first time!
Are you interested in brilliant Galaxies, gargantuan super-Clusters and gorgeous Nebulae? Then please join myself 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.
Our next Deep Sky Observing session will be from 7pm-12pm on Saturday 5th December.
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 happy people and come for the grand experience...
