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. :)

MEMBERS - please note, the annual general meeting will be on Tuesday 20th September at the Bracken Ridge Library. A light meal will be served from 6:30pm prior to the meeting - for catering purposes, could you please let a committee member know that you are coming. The AGM will commence at 7:30pm - in order to vote at the meeting, you will need to be a current member, so please if you haven't done so already, ensure that membership has been renewed.

If you would like to be more involved with the club, either as one of the office bearers or section officers but not sure what is required, then speak to any of the existing committee members who will be only too happy to help - new faces are always welcome.

The AGM will be followed by the ordinary general meeting. As usual, light refreshments will be available at the meeting.
