If you are coming to the astrophotography night this coming Tuesday (29th Oct), please bring any recent images on a USB stick (HVSP included) and we will load them all up and have them showing – it doesn’t matter what state they are in but bring them along and we can talk about them and you can ask any questions you might have – either in group forum or in 1-1.

Clear Skies

NSAS General Meeting Minutes September 19

29 09 2019

Dear Members,

It was another interesting GM with guest speaker Marnie Ogg presenting on one of the big challenges for astronomy, namely, light pollution. It is startling that the discussions on this increasingly important issue have only really been going on in Australia this year. Members are encouraged to read a summary of this excellent presentation in the minutes.

There is no ordinary General Meeting in October, only the Annual General Meeting (AGM). At the upcoming AGM on October 15th nominations are called for the positions of President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. Nominations must be made in writing signed by two members of our association with the endorsement or consent of the person nominated. The nomination must be delivered to the secretary at least 7 days before the AGM. If there is more than one person seeking the same position, a ballot will be conducted at the AGM.

The Hunter Valley Star Party is this week and the weather is looking favourable which should make for a really enjoyable occasion. Looking forward to seeing many of our members and guests at the HVSP.

Tony Oesterheld

Club Secretary
