November Meeting – Under the Southern Skies

Thursday, November 1, 2018 – 8:00pm to 10:00pm

In this talk and slide show, Michael Watson will discuss his recent month-long trip to Australia, which included several nights of stargazing and astrophotography from the dark skies of the Australian Outback. He will talk about how he prepared for the trip, the equipment that he took, and how he produced the photos that you will see. His astrophotos will be interspersed with photos of some of the sights from around the Land Down Under.

Michael is well known around the RASC as a 48-year member, an astrophotographer and a solar eclipse enthusiast, and a member of the Society’s Board of Directors. At the July General Assembly in Calgary, Michael gave a photographic presentation on the Milky Way titled “There’s No Place Like Home.” He has been a guest speaker at previous Mississauga Centre meetings, and is looking forward to returning and sharing the results from his trip to Oz.
