APSIG Meeting Tues Feb 6th

Hello everyone
 
This month Nathan Day is giving a presentation on his astrophotography evolution,  He will be describing the equipment and software he has used and pros and cons of each configuration.
I’m sure it will be an interesting discussion for all levels of experience. 
 
 
We will also finalize the plans for an APSIG Astrophotography trip to 3RF .   Jay Ellis is coordinating the visit with Jeff Barton.  Last month we thought Feb 16-17 would be the best dates. The plan is to discuss the trip and
finalize plans for the trip.

Don’t forget your show and Tell images
 
 
6 PM to 8 PM at the Timberglen Library (Midway Road ~ 1 mile south of George Bush)

Tentative : APSIG Meeting Tues Nov 7th

APSIG Gang
 
Right Now we are planning for a meeting Tuesday Evening. I need to verify that we have the meeting room, We have been bumped by elections and voting in the past and I,m pretty sure Nov 7th is voting day.
We are still on Timberglen’s calendar but I will call the Library tomorrow and send out a go/no go when I find out if the room is available.
 
 
on a good note looks like I will be able to make it to this month’s meeting hip surgery went well and rehab has been going well.
 
We will have a presentation on Cameras for Deep Sky , mainly DSLR vs CCD Cameras
Followed by General topics Question and Answer session, 
 
and of course  Show and Tell

APSIG Meeting Tues Oct 3rd

Hey Gang
 
We will have an informal question and answer session this month, there have been allot of unasked/unanswered question since we have been focusing on the eclipse.
 
I would like to give new members a chance to ask questions an see if we can help them.
 
I would also like to have a discussion about the direction of APSIG. What would you like to discuss, what do you think the format meetings  should consist of, what would benefit everyone the most. Bring your ideas
, just trying to get a feel how to get the most out of the meeting, what do you like, what do you dislike, what would you like to see in the future.
 
Don’t forget your show and tells images.
