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. :)

September 2020

In September, the club had a dark sky long weekend at Watts Bridge. The first two nights were so-so, with some viewing curtailed by clouds and hazy atmosphere, but those who hung in for the third night had an excellent observing and imaging session.

There has not been a resumption of public observing nights due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.
