Next Meetup

Chasing the Milky Way and the Perseids Meteor Shower.
**Due to high probability of rain or thunderstorms and mostly cloudy skies we are re-scheduling this MeetUP!** We will try to re-schedule as soon as we can find the right conditions. Thank you for your understanding!*** Several members have talked about doing some astrophotography and the posibility of doing it in one of our MeetUps. So, on the 11th of August, nature will give us a couple of astronomical events that will create ideal conditions to shoot the sky: there will be a New Moon and the Perseids Meteor Showers! So we are meeting Saturday night to chase the Milky Way and the Meteor Sower. We are planning to meet near the George Observatory and will aim to photograph the Milky Way which will raise around 8:00 PM and will wait for the Meteor Shower later on; Brazos Bend park closes at 11:00 PM during the summer and some other members have discussed camping overnight. Here is more info on the George Observatory: What to Bring: (no flash photography please!) • 24-70 and 14-24 lenses or any other wide angle lens • Tripod and Remote Control (if you have one) • Comfortable shoes and a chair or camping stool • Hydration • Mosquito Repellent • Flash Light or Head Light (As you will need this for sure to see your camera setting in the night, red color is preferable) • Bring some snacks as well.... you might feel hungry Can You Help?
