ASSA@Home | Roads Less Travelled

Roads Less Travelled in the Southern Summer Sky by Joe Grida & Paul Martinaitis

The summer night sky is full of dazzling deep-sky targets to lure you. But there are equally exciting objects in corners of the southern sky where most amateurs don't travel. Join Paul Martinaitis and Joe Grida as they guide you through the back roads to vistas you never knew existed.

BIO: Joe Grida has been observing the sky for over 50 years. He has been a member of ASSA since 1973 and has served continuously on Council since 1974. Currently holds the position of Technical Information Officer. His extensive astronomical knowledge and experience with public outreach equip him well to answer the inevitable questions from the public about life, the universe and everything! He is a visual deep sky observer, chasing elusive photons from dark skies whenever he can. Which isn’t often enough!

BIO: Paul Martinaitis started observing with his Dad from a young age through a 2-inch Tasco on a homemade equatorial mount. After a break of many years, his interest was rekindled with the purchase of a SkyWatcher 12-inch telescope and he joined ASSA in 2009. Favourite targets are: globular clusters, bright nebulae and galaxies. He also makes occasional forays into planetary/solar imaging.
