General Meeting (Public Welcome)

Featured presentation:   

Multitudinous Multiples!

Bart Fried, DVAA Life Member and Founder and Past President of the Antique Telescope Society

For today’s amateur astronomers, observing multiple stars offers a rewarding pastime that can be as casual as simply finding and observing them, or as demanding as making precision measurements and submitting results. And observing multiple stars can be done in any location, whether in the middle of the city or from the darkest enclave. This presentation will cover the very basics up to some advanced techniques. The emphasis will be on observational double star astronomy for the amateur of any level,and we’ll also discuss imaging of double stars, too.  It will be the What’s, Why’s, and How’s of observing multiple star systems! This talk will also cover the fundamentals of your optics, to better understand your telescope’s limitations. And we’ll look at many of the tools that are readily available, along with a quick run-down of the lingo, nomenclature and measurement system used for making personal observation reports.

 

We will be back to our usual face-to-face meeting venue, the Radnorshire Room at the Radnor Community Building!.  The meeting will also be livestreamed on our YouTube channel.    We gather beginning at 7pm; the program and the livestream begin at 7:30pm.
