There will be experienced observers on hand to help coordinate viewing for the evening and the usage of the Cody Telescope. If the weather is inclement, a Club night will be held and there will be informal talks in the observatory clubroom. The society's 8" Meade reflector will also be available and there may be opportunities to try some photography.

All members are encouraged to attend, be they novices or experts and, if they wish, to bring along their own 'scopes if the weather is fine. Please note any equipment you bring on site is done so entirely at your own risk.

Actual dates will be selected at short notice according to weather.
An E Mail will be sent out to members shortly beforehand.
