Tom Croskey provided an overview of considerations when it comes to choosing new equipment, then five club members gave a short overview of noteworthy products: Mike Close, the Star Adventurer GTi; Matt Schie, the Lunt 50 Solar Scope; John Pannuto, Celestron StarSense Products; Bob Berta, the ZWO AM5/3 Mounts; and Dave Holt, the ZWO SeeStar S50. Thanks, all, for putting this together! (By the way, if there is a topic you would like to know more about or a topic you would like to present, send an email to vicepresident at oaklandastronomy.net!)
8:50 PM... we ran overtime on the main presentation and ended the meeting with a few critical club business items:

- News from the President: Gary introduced the current 2024 club officer slate and encouraged other interested nominees to come forward. The election process takes place at the December meeting.
