Our President, Charles Ennis, has been researching small observatories all over the world in order to write a handbook for the RASC for people interested in building themselves such an observatory for their own use. He has spoken to amateur astronomers all over Canada and the US, in Japan, Australia, Tasmania, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Belgium, and the UK. He’s also on the observatory committee responsible for our Centre’s own small observatory project. At 7:30 on 9 January, 2015 at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre, 5714 Medusa St, Sechelt, Charles will talk about what he has learned about what to do (and what not to) when approaching a project such as this.
Last September one of our newer members, Errol Lipschitz, sent a couple of photographs from his current trip to Prague. Scott, our librarian, thought the pictures may be of interest so he forwarded them to the rest of us for the sake of everyone’s interest. He also provided a couple of links for further information on the subjects of said photographs. Scott found the Stefanik Observatory bit interesting, if for no other reason than a seemingly philosophically kindred spirit with our club concerning public outreach.
