Do you enjoy taking and/or viewing pictures of the sky? Are you looking for some pointers to up your skill set or turn that “nice” shot into “calendar image!”? Maybe in the last couple of months you have 5 images, or made 4 time-lapses that are too much for the AstroImaging Corner at our Regular Meetings. Whether you take 4 minutes or want to share a 20 minute backstory for a specially composed a shot, or demo a technique others can benefit from, bring it to our community!

General Assembly in Calgary
June 28 – July 1, 2018

The RASC General Assembly in 2018 Welcome!

On behalf of the GA Organizing Committee, as well as the entire Calgary Centre, I would like to welcome you to the 2018 General Assembly in Calgary, Alberta. We are honoured to host this year’s General Assembly over the Canada Day long weekend. 2018 is a landmark year, as it marks not only the 150th Anniversary of the RASC, but also the 60th Anniversary of the Calgary Centre. The GA Organizing Committee has assembled an exciting program of events, including top-notch speakers, a look back on the history of our Society, as well as field trips to give you a taste of the Calgary area, as well as some of the magnificent sights of southern Alberta and the Rocky Mountains.
