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. :)

January 2023

Welcome back everyone - our first meeting of the year will be held this coming Tuesday 17/01/2023 at the Bracken Ridge Library as usual. Skype will also be available.

Hopefully we can settle the matter re club president at the meeting [please read Editor's comments in Jan newsletter]

Later in the month, an observing session will be held at the Bracken Ridge Reserve - the first of what hopefully will be a return to regular public viewing sessions.

Also, we hope to see a return to school nights this year - think about how you may be able to help in supporting these sessions. More details will be available once dates are confirmed.

December 2022

Month kicked off with the Christmas Party at Nudgee Beach Reserve - pretty unsettled weather in the days before, but in the end it went ahead. A bit breezy at times [at least kept the bugs away], but everyone present had an enjoyable time.

Remember, International Moon Night in October which was clouded out - instead member s were invited to submit any image made in October which included the moon. The prize for the best entry - a coffee mug with the winning image printed on the mug. Congratulations Julie.

From the committee - best wishes for the festive season and we look forward to seeing everyone back in the new year
