In order to help the AAVSO I followed the lead of the Visual Astronomy blog in posting this offer from Sky & Telescope.
The last astronomy presentation at the library had a great turn-out so I scheduled more!
Here is the info for the next one:
The Power of Telescopes
In celebration of the International Year of Astronomy 2009 a presentation about the The Power of Telescopes will be given by Mark Tillotson. A hands-on demonstration of how a telescope works will be presented along with a discussion of the different types of telescopes in use today and the pictures they produce.
The event is on Monday, April 6, 2009 at the Emmaus Public Library at 7 pm. If the skies are clear, I will set up a telescope after the presentation.
Future astronomy nights at the library are scheduled for Tuesday, May 12th and Monday, June 1st. Please join me at the library!
