This presentation will begin with a lecture/slideshow on visual observing of celestial objects, presented by Master Observer Al Lamperti. If you have ever wondered about the difference between an asterism and an open cluster, or a how to tell a nebula from a galaxy when viewed with a backyard telescope, this presentation will clear up those mysteries. Learn which eyepieces and filters to use to observe various types of objects, and how to describe and categorize what you are observing. Al will also discuss the different types of telescopes. After the presentation, telescopes will be available in the room for attendees to operate indoors.
Open to anyone 9 years and older. We need at least 8 registrants in order to hold the workshop.
