We are fortunate in having a number of members with their own telescopes and we now have two immediate objectives. First, to put the telescopes to good use. This is entirely dependent on the weather and on the willingness of the telescope owners to take them to a suitable location. When the weather conditions are right, any telescope owner who is willing will email the group suggesting a time and place to observe. Members with telescopes will share experience and viewing opportunities.
The second objective is to explore theoretical astronomy/cosmology further. It has been suggested that we follow the series of the excellent MOOCs [online courses] developed by the Australian National University and available from EdX as self-paced courses. Meeting on a regular basis to discuss and explore these will probably be the focus of regular sessions, apart from the observing.
