The Moon is our nearest neighbour in space, and shows more detail than any other celestial object for backyard skywatchers. In this course, you’ll learn how to understand the moon’s regular cycles of phases and how that translates into what you can see. We’ll explore the moon up-close, through binoculars and small telescopes, and get you started on tracking down craters, mountains, and other features on the Moon. We’ll also talk about equipment and accessories for binocular and telescope users, and help you figure out what you need and what you don’t. Finally, we’ll show you how to use whatever camera you have to take amazing pictures of the moon.
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.
