"Our next meeting will be on:

Come along and join us and learn about telescopes, other equipment and our night sky. Anyone is welcome to come out and observe with us but remember to rug up as it can get chilly anytime of the year!
DATES AND TIMES:
WHAT TO BRING AND WEAR:
Bring a telescope and/or binoculars if you have them. If you don’t have a telescope,
the club has an 8” dobsonian-mounted telescope that you can use. Other members will also be happy to show you things through their telescopes! White-light torches are not allowed on the observing field as they ruin night vision. Bring a red-light torch if you have one, or adapt a white-light torch by firmly fixing a couple of sheets of red cellophane to the end. Wear warm clothing, especially in winter when the temperature can drop to below zero! Even in summer it can get quite cool on the observing field.
HOW TO FIND US:
The Porepunkah Airport is situated on the western side of the Buckland Valley Road,
about 3km south of the roundabout on the Great Alpine Road, Porepunkah – map below.
