Instructional Videos

Our plan is to create a suite of instructional videos for the main items of equipment BAS has available to members to rent.  From there we will progress to other mounts and telescopes commonly used by our members. These videos will provide the basic information to get started with tasks such as set-up, star alignment and common operational tasks.

But, as the TV ad say, “it won’t happen overnight, but it will happen”.    Here is what we have so far:
