About the General Meeting Presentation

On the morning of August 20 I set up for the Moon and was rewarded with both the scope acting good and the local seeing settling down for about half an hour to the best I have ever had here in San Antonio. The result was image resolution that shows craters as small as one kilometer. I finally had time to prepare a web page for these images and have it up at http://www.robertreeves.com/Moon20Aug2011.htm.

Parking and Directions (View Map)

Meetings are held in the Science & Research building at the University of Houston Main Campus. The novice meeting is in room 116, the general meeting is in room 117.

Parking is available in lot 15F as shown in the accompanying diagram (provided by the University of Houston Parking Director Paul Lozano). This site is off Cullen Boulevard, just south of the new parking garage. The University of Houston has been provided a list of meeting dates for the Houston Astronomical Society to the end of 2013. UH campus police have those dates on their calendar and will not issue citations for HAS attendees.
