SEQAS South East Queensland Astronomical Society

SEQAS provides many free community activities, such as Urban Observers, Dark Sky nights and away camps. Come on in and see the stars, planets, nebulae, and galaxies in the night sky. 

We can help you make the right decision when looking to buy a telescope or give you some guidance in using your telescope if you are having problems with handling it. Our members have many years of experience in the field of amateur astronomy and we would love to help you get the most out of this fascinating hobby. :)

Otober 2022

Welcome and congratulations to all those members elected to the committee or a position within the club for 2022/23 - it is only through the support and involvement of members that we are where we are today. 2022 has not been a particularly good year for viewing due to inclement weather and some events still not up and running since the onset of Covid, but hopefully, the new year will see the return of regular school nights and public viewing sessions at Bracken Ridge.

We have just a couple more regular meetings before the end of the year - our next ordinary general meeting will be on the 18th October at the Bracken Ridge Library.
