Our evening presentations at your place are a delight! Take a tour with experienced guides of the Night Sky through powerful Meade Telescopes. See such things as the Moon (if risen) star clusters, planets, nebulae and learn about the Milky Way and how we fit into the Solar System.

Our special program is unique… a never to be forgotten journey of the night sky. There is nothing quite like seeing the distant stars and planets with your own eyes through our magnificent telescopes – and it’s all done from your backyard with your friends around! Great for BBQs, Birthdays or just fun social night!

YOUR STELLAR JOURNEY starts with our experienced night sky guide, world renowned astronomer, lecturer and media personality (Astro) Dave Reneke. Dave will take you on a fascinating laser guided night sky tour from your backyard.  Share his knowledge and see the universe like you’ve never seen it before. Designed for those with no knowledge of astronomy this talk is covered in simple, easy to understand terms.

Telescope Viewing

THEN our expert astronomer Dustin Bradford will show you a myriad of things in the night sky through his giant 12 inch Meade Telescope that will remain a talking point for years to come.  See huge craters close-up on the Moon (if risen). Then on to Planets, Stars and gaseous Nebula… it’s all there! Dustin will also help you take your own photograph through the telescope with your smartphone of what you see!

YOU WILL SEE AND HEAR THINGS YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE!

Ask Yourself Have You Ever… Touched a real space rock? Seen the rings of Saturn? Viewed star clusters 17,000 light years away? Seen the craters and ‘seas’ on the Moon up close… or just looked through a large telescope?

One Off Programs: If you are in need of a specialised astronomy talk that doesn’t fit in the above categories then speak to us. There are many tho choose from. OR I can devise a program tailored for you.

Some recommendations:

Good morning Dave. My name is Paul Barry and you may recall I introduced myself after your presentation last Tuesday at the Probus South meeting at the Port Macquarie Golf Club. Firstly, let me reiterate what a wonderful presentation you gave on the Planets, Stars and Constellations of our night skies. It certainly garnered a lot of interest at question time from the members, a sure sign that it was a most enjoyable and informative talk. Well done.

You may also recall that I mentioned that I was the Guest Speaker Liaison officer for another club, Port Macquarie Combined Probus and cheekily asked if you might consider being our Guest Speaker later this year. I hope you can consider our invitation. Looking forward to hearing from you and I note that you have presented to our club back in 2009! Many new members since then though but still quite a few that recall your talk and highly recommend you.
