[email protected] Courses: Observing the Deep Sky

May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Image credit: Scott D. Young

Tuesday, May 3 from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm CST

Level: Intermediate

 

The “deep sky” includes all of the celestial objects farther away than our solar system: stars, clusters, nebulae, and galaxies. They are often faint and require some special techniques to get the best view. In this course, you’ll discover how to best observe these distant objects using your binoculars or small telescope, and get Scott’s “top 50” objects to look for in the night sky.

Topics include:

  • Unaided eye versus binoculars versus small telescopes versus large telescopes
  • Overview of the kinds of objects we can see, and what they are
  • Equipment concerns: aperture, eyepieces, and star charts
  • Night vision and how to make it work for you
  • Necessary accessories
  • Seeing, sketching, and imaging: basic ways to record what you see and share it with others

 

Intermediate-level courses are three-hour courses designed for people who have binoculars or a small telescope. The course is conducted as an online Zoom meeting. You will need a device and an internet connection to participate.

 

Intermediate courses are $25 for Museum members and $30 for non-members.
