THE FOLLOWING MEETING IS POSTPONED TO FEBRUARY 15TH.

Our January 18th meeting will be our annual telescope workshop, where we invite anyone with a telescope they’d like to tune up or just learn how to use to bring it to us for assistance. This invitation is open to the general public as well as club members, so if you’ve got a scope that needs help or you need help learning your scope, bring it to the meeting!

This will also be a swap meet, so bring whatever astronomy gear you’d like to sell or give away and have a look at what others bring. You might find a treasure or two!

We’ll also use this time for general socializing. This is a chance to visit with and get to know other club members whom you might only know via the email list or in the dark at star parties.

This is a great opportunity to spread the word about our club and what we do. Tell anyone you know who might be interested in astronomy that this is the meeting to come to if they have questions about gear or our club or about astronomy in general. The structure of this meeting will be very informal, with lots of opportunity to visit with one another and share our various areas of expertise. This is also a good opportunity to just hang out and visit with fellow club members in a warm and comfortable environment. Come join the fun!

The meeting is at 7:00 on Thursday, January 18th at the Science Center planetarium. 2300 Leo Harris Parkway in Eugene (behind Autzen Stadium). People with scopes are encouraged to bring them a little early. We’ll be happy to help carry them in from the parking lot.
