“Experience the Universe at Charlie Elliott”
March Meeting & Potluck and a Visit from Explore Scientific!
All of the Above!
Charlie Elliott Astronomy Observing Supervisor and International Man of Mystery David Whalen will give a short talk about what you can expect to see in the sky this month with binoculars and small telescopes, as well as the monthly observing challenge. If you’ve been to one of our meetings, you know that David is an engaging speaker and always delivers a lot of great information with plenty of laughs!
Observing After the Meeting
Greg Bragg from Explore Scientific will join us to talk about using a computerized goto telescope and the current state of technology available to the amateur observer and imager at all levels of expertise. He’ll be using the new Explore Scientific EXOS-2 GT PMC-8 mount from Explore Scientific for the workshop. Greg will also have some other new Explore Scientific products on hand for everyone to check out. If the weather cooperates, Greg will join us on the observing field for a couple of hours of observing with the new Explore Scientific products! If you have an idea for a 15-30 minute discussion or presentation that you would like to see or would like to give, contact the Charlie Elliott Program Coordinator, Steve Siedentop.
