Saturday 19th November 2016 - Deep Sky Observing

Dear enthusiastic Deep-Sky Observers,

Are you interested in brilliant Galaxies, gargantuan Star 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 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 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 preferred contact details to:

E-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Mobile: 0449 769 666

Remember, the dastard weather and atmospheric conditions can swiftly change affecting scheduled nights. 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 will all commence at approximately nine o'clock and onward (9:00pm ~ 12:00pm) unless specified.

Important: 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.

Thank you all sincerely,
Braeden Borg

Saturday 3rd September 2016 - Deep Sky Observing - CANCELLED

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!

BONUS CONTENT THIS MONTH:

The Deep-Sky team has recently partnered up with the LCOGT (Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network) with the opportunity to utilise telescopes globally for generally visual observing and astrophotography. As there are multiple telescopes available in both hemispheres,  observing can take place at any time with heightened chances against bad weather in local regions. We will be exploring the technology provided at the next Deep-Sky Night (see below) and will schedule time to conduct some observational tests on any object we want to look at! So join us and share your ideas on what to look at! This opportunity will allow us to do some amazing things with astronomical objects we wouldn't otherwise see and experience. Find out more at https://lcogt.net/ if you are interested in the history of the educational program and their facilities.
