[email protected] Courses: Binocular Astronomy

March 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Monday, March 14 from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm CST

Level: Introductory

 

Binoculars are like two tiny telescopes, one for each eye, and they can be a powerful tool to explore the night sky. In this course, we’ll make sure you can get the most of whatever binoculars you already have, or help you make the right purchase. This course provides you with the knowledge you’ll need to see craters on the moon, the moons of Jupiter, a stellar nursery where new stars are being born, and galaxies millions of light-years away.

Topics include:

  • What’s up there to see in binoculars?
  • How to choose binoculars for astronomy – how do they work, and what do the numbers mean?
  • Expectations versus reality
  • Basic sky advice: constellations as signposts; how the stars rise and set
  • Star maps and how to use them
  • Star Hopping: how to find stuff
  • What to look at: a season-by-season approach for binocular observers

 

Introductory-level courses are 2.5-hour courses conducted as an online Zoom meeting. You will need a device and an internet connection to participate.

 

Introductory courses are $20 for Museum members and $25 for non-members.
