Re: [astronomy-125] Participation - what are people looking for?

Thanks for everyone's input.  It sounds like a get together, maybe mid-September, would be appropriate.  I get the impression that many people are new to astronomy, not that I'm an expert, and some of the basics (like basic telescope operation, polar allignment, etc) would be appropriate.
 
I'm off up north (to less light-polluted skys) next week so I will not be at the next two Friday meetups including tonight.

Hi Gerry,
     I went on Jul 25 and had a fabulous time. Sorry to have missed you. I'll defintiely return to this great place, virtually up the street from where I live. I'll try to go tomorrow again before boarding plane for LA. Looking forward to Griffith Observatory. Anything I can bring back or do while I'm out there?
Thanks again,

Hi.

Participation has been less than great for some of the meetups. I'm wondering what people would like to see out of this meetup. I started this meetup with the intention of it being more focused on observation, i.e. telescopes & astro-photography, with maybe some discussion on astrophysics, cosmology, etc.

Would people like an organizational meeting to discuss where we'd like to go?

I've been away for a couple of meetups but I think the seeing Friday (8th) should be not bad - for around here, so it would be nice to meet some people at Great Falls Observatory.

I'm looking for some feedback here people.

Thanks, Gerry
