The video of the November meeting is now on YouTube here. This includes the presentation by November's guest speaker, Benjamin Gerard, a PhD candidate at University of Victoria specializing in imaging and spectroscopy of extra-solar planets, as well as the regular obervers' reports and monthly challenges, which are still worth trying even if now out of date!
