New Astronomer’s Group Starts Tuesday April 26

21 04 2016
Just a reminder that the first New Astronomer’s Group (NAG) session for 2016 starts this Tuesday April 26, at 7.30 pm.  We meet at Regis Hall – on Riverview Road opposite St. Ignatius Riverview’s main school campus.  A map can be found at the link below.

If you would like to attend and haven’t already registered, the registration form can be found here: Registration Form

We meet in a room just below the main hall.  So we can start on time, it would be great if you could start arriving at around 7:15 pm.

Weather permitting, the first session will include some observing time, with NSAS members providing a variety of scopes for you to look through for a short period.  There will be an opportunity to bring your own telescope later in the course if you have one, but for now you can look through those provided by the members.

All materials and some light refreshments are provided during the course.  The cost of the course is $30 for non-society members, which covers you for all 7 sessions, and can be paid on Tuesday.  Alternatively, if you would like to become a member of the society, you can download our membership form here: Join NSAS and bring it with you on the night.  Membership is $50, and the cost of the course is included in your membership.

All you need to bring is:

1. A pen and paper
2. A willingness to learn and ask questions
3. Some warm clothes, including a warm jacket and a beanie, as we are getting into the colder parts of the year, and will be spending about 1/2 an hour outside observing if weather permits.
4. If you have a pair of binoculars, feel free to bring them along!

Hello Chris,

unfortunately we will not be able to join you for this term of the New Astronomer’s Group. My workload has increased, and we will also be overseas in June and July.

We will try again next time to Group runs.

Kind regards,

Peter
