GAM got under way in South Canterbury New Zealand on Saturday evening. We started off with about 15 telescopes coming out from the closet for our telescope workshop. The novice astronomers recieved help from many of our more expierenced members, setting up there mounts,  finderscopes,  and  assisting  with  eyepiece selection.

Several went away with membership forms as well,  a very benefical  two hours.

At 7PM the star party started, with 8 scopes from our members, everything from 90mm Mak  to 12 inch dobs.  We had about... 150 attend, seeing conditions were great, everybody had a good time, and many will be back for more next Saturday. we have four events in total taking place during April.

Here is a selection of images from the Telescope workshop:
