    ahh great thanks for that link!
    When I searched for their website, this site didn't come up or maybe i searched for the old frankston site (which i know is now mornington peninsula).
    i actually attended about a decade ago one viewing night, been a long time! I will check the calender and see what i can do, thanks a lot!

    Hi, I'm from Northern suburbs (Eltham North) of Melbourne. It's good to see there are a few Astronomers out there from Melbourne. I have been a member of this forum for a while now.....but a little slow getting into it. I have just ordered another refracting telescope. the night sky here is not too bad, but it could be a lot better. How is your viewing? regards Peter ..."Keep looking up"
