Saturday 14th May 2016 - Deep Sky Observing

PLEASE NOTE: this will now happen at 9pm Saturday 14th May (weather permitting)

Dear enthusiastic Deep-Sky Observers,

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. Also, we welcome Astrophotography to the event with the guidance of our lovely 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:

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

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


Please consider the neighbours and drive in and out quietly using low beam only, or better still, parking lights.


Please note: MBO will always be closed on days of Severe, Extreme and Code Red fire ratings, please see the CFA website for up-to-date information.
