We will meet at MOSH instead of a General Meeting of the Northeast Florida Astronomical Society [NEFAS].
Saturday, November 12 – 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
- MOSH, 1025 Museum Cir.Jacksonville, FL 32207
This will be a display of our telescopes and a possible lecture on How to Buy a telescope, in the planetarium. Details are still being worked out, but we will be doing some sort of lecture on How to Buy a Telescope and displaying our telescopes. Might be a viewing of some objects afterward.
I have a Meade lx10 8” with tripod and an etx125 with tripod that I don’t use anymore. Would your culb like to have them?
Getting back to you. Right now we are experiencing a glut of donations at NEFAS. However, an 8 inch scope is very respectable and Meade does make good optics, so I would hesitate to turn away such an offer. The difficulty we have is finding a place to store it. We love that sort of problem. We will not be formerly meeting again until January 13th for our voters meeting. We would definitely like to take a look at your scope there.
Thanks for your offer,
J.V. director at large of NEFAS
