Computing Section

The computing section of the ASV meets on the first Monday of each month at 8:00pm, except for January, at the Society's Clubrooms. Meetings are informal, friendly and all are welcome.

The objectives of the section are to study, apply and enjoy the use of small computing systems. Interest in the group ranges over such areas as using various astronomy software programs, installing hardware components, local networking, performing graphic image manipulation, telescope control, and learning basic computer operations just to name a few. Knowledge in the group is varied, and while none of us claim to be experts we will offer advice and assistance where we can.

The section also manages some PCs at the Society's Clubrooms and collaborates with members of other ASV sections in using these and other small computing systems.

If you don't know anything about computing but are eager to learn, you would like to investigate something specific, or you just want to have a cup of coffee and chat about computers, then feel free to come along.
