POSTPONED – [email protected] Courses: Observing the Planets

November 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Tuesday, November 8 from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm CST New date to be announced

Level: Intermediate

 

The planets of our solar system are usually bright and easy to find, but seeing them up close requires different techniques than viewing galaxies and star clusters. In this course, you’ll learn how to optimize your equipment and your observing site for planetary viewing, what eyepieces and accessories will give you the best results, and how to improve your eye-brain combination by drawing what you see. you’ll also get a primer on how to take images of the planets through your telescope, with everything from a cell phone camera to a specialized planetary camera – all using free software.

Topics include:

  • The solar system from a backyard astronomer’s perspective
  • Opposition, altitude, and other important items
  • Tuning your telescope for planetary observing
  • Eyepieces, barlows, and filters
  • Planetary imaging primer

Intermediate-level courses assume some basic experience on the part of the student. For this course it is assumed that the student has a telescope with appropriate mount and eyepieces. 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.
