Monthly Meeting February – Kumeu Observatory – Note the change to Tuesday evening.
February 15 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Society operate the Kumeu Observatory, which over recent times, has been upgraded with a GSO 400mm Ritchey–Chrétien telescope and full frame cooled CMOS camera (QHY 600M) fitted with a filter wheel. The Society purchased these using funds from the Trixie and Barry Menzies bequest. Society member Tony Cooper will be bringing us up to date with the progress at the observatory, including resolution of issues with the dome, the equipment, software and the correct setup and calibration of the new camera. He will also report on the first scientific results from the new setup.
