Upcoming Meeting – June 10th, 2017 at 6PM – Swap Meet

It is again that time of year to clear out those extra Astronomy items that may be collecting dust in the garage, attic, or basement: our annual Swap Meet at Perkins Observatory.

Do you have an old telescope that you don’t use? How about some eyepieces? Maybe a CCD camera that was replaced by newer one? Books? Software? Star charts?

All are welcome! If you are planning to set up a table, please arrive by 5pm to set up. The swap meet starts at 6pm. Hopefully we will have some clear skies to test any new equipment we pick up.

Donuts and coffee of course are provided.

Join us at our next meeting, 8pm, to hear long time CAS member, Brad Hoehne, give an update of all of the current NASA planetary missions.  Including details on the upcoming Cassini final orbits around Saturn.

Coffee and refreshments will be provided.  And if it is clear, we will be observing on the front lawn of Perkins Observatory.

If you have a telescope that you need help with, please bring it along! We would be happy to show you how it works, and help set it up.
