One thought on “Meeting Feb. 20 2013”

  1. Helen led us through the usual charts covering both APL AC events and external star parties. Steve went over the upcoming 9 March 2013 star party at his house. Helen went over the budget, showing that all the 2013 items had been purchased, and most are in house.

    Ron reviewed the new equipment received, and the basics on how to use them. Included were the Lunt Ca telescope (less filter at this time), the Meade mounts, and the Orion solar system imagers. There was a fair discussion about the use of imagers, with Dave T, Ron, and Steve. It was suggested that for the next star party at APL we set-up and use some of the imagers.
