Reminder- PAS General meeting Friday March 6th

Post by Bjohnson » Thu Mar 05, 2020 9:57 am

Just a quick reminder that our March general meeting for the Pontchartrain Astronomy Society is this Friday, March 6thth at 7:30 PM at UNO Science building Room 1001.
Our guest speaker this month is our own PAS member Dr. Greg Seab, who always thrills with his presentations!

Barry Simon will hold a Reverse Auction on a Losmandy mount. It will go for a great price! Details below.
We will be doing a reverse auction this month. Our featured item will be an excellent condition Losmandy GM8 S German equatorial mount complete with Losmandy folding light weight tripod. This mount has a 30 lb. payload capacity and is complete with drive system and hand controller and all necessary cables. When new, these mounts sold for $1695.00

See full description here: ... pod-gm-8-s

A reverse auction works at a starting price. For this mount we will start the auction at $800.00. If no one wants it at that price, the price will be lowered, and lowered again if necessary. There comes a point where the mount will be withdrawn from sale if no one wants to purchase it at a minimally acceptable level. Even at $800.00 it is a steal. Some of the proceeds from the mount sale will benefit the PAS.

If seriously interested, please bring your check book or cash.

I hope to see all of you at the meeting. Bring a guest!
Bill Johnson
PAS President, 2018-2020
