S.H.A.R.E. -- Procedures
System for Handicap Accessability, Recreation and Education

The procedure manual for the S.H.A.R.E. System has not been written yet. We are just starting to use it, and have no experience with best practices which will change depending on the nature of the event. There are a large number of ways the S.H.A.R.E. System can be setup and each will have its own manual.

One important lesson learned at the 2007 Pomerelle star party is that the only way to use the SHARE system is as a presentation where we have someone giving a talk, and someone else running the scope and camera. A goto scope, or someone who can nail objects every time, as well as an eyepiece that is parfocal with the camere will be reqiured. If the club every buys a scope, goto capability will be essential.
