February Astronomy Night

  • to

  • Rosevale Hall

    Bidgenorth Road, Rosevale (map)

    -41.429840 146.931440

  • Easiest route from Launceston is to head out via Ecclestone Road Riverside. Follow the road signs to Rosevale. First turn to right is about 10km down the road.
  • For New Moon in February we have booked the Rosevale Hall. There will be access to the kitchen and toilets and power onsite. The cost is set at the usual $10 per head.

    A bbq is available for those wanting to cook their tea. Kitchen available for light food preparation tea coffee etc.

    Also NO ALCOHOL!! Otherwise we would have to field a $500 bond rather than a $50 dollar bond.

    Decided not to worry too much about cancellation etc. We will still need to pay for the hall regardless of us cancelling due to bad weather. What I suggest is that those who can forward me $10 via Paypal to [masked]. And those who can't just pay on the night when you get there. If we do cancel and you have already paid I will let you get your money back on the next couple of Clarendon Nights you go to by only paying the $5 donation rather than the full $10 each night.

    I will be finalizing the booking arrangements on Sunday Evening. Once done we are locked in so even if the event is canceled due to bad weather we will still be obliged to fulfill payment so you have until Sunday to withdraw if you feel you can't take the risk with your money. Based on current interest we are looking at $20 a head. More next week.

    The main activity will be astronomical observing through telescopes, binoculars and, if you have neither, naked eye. Members are happy to share views through their telescopes with visitors and newcomers. Also some will be doing astrophotography which again visitors and newcomers are invited to ask questions observe learn etc.
