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
