ASSA@Home: Show & Tell

ASSA members Dean Davidson, Ian Blackwell and Paul Martinaitis will be looking at some of the things you can construct at home to make your observing life easier. Relatively simple projects that will be presented and discussed will include DIY observing chairs, a parallelogram binocular mount, and an Alt-Az mount. We will also present a 12-inch "Dob in a Box", an eyepiece box, and (hopefully!) a progress report on a 14-inch go-to binocular.

Bios:

Dean Davidson is a Life Member of ASSA and is a two-term former President and Editor. He is currently an Astronomy educator running a portable planetarium, a keen woodworker and experienced visual observer.

Paul Martinaitis has been an interested in Astronomy from a young age and joined ASSA in 2009. His main interests lie in visual observation of deep-sky objects and planetary imaging.

The show will be streamed LIVE on our YouTube channel with the opportunity to ask questions via text chat.

Please note, this is not a General meeting, nor intended to replace General meetings.

As a new concept, it’s most important the Society receives feedback from its members. This will help us shape the format and content of any future shows.
