Getting Started in Astronomy: SoVerA Meeting (via Zoom)

November 10, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Margot Kuhns Schmitt

Looking for things to do during the long nights ahead? Considering a holiday gift for the whole family?

November’s presentation will include information on how to begin backyard viewing, even before getting any sort of telescope. There will be basic information on the various types of telescopes available to the amateur astronomer and a discussion of related equipment. By the end of the presentation, viewers should be equipped with the knowledge about what is needed to view the night sky in their own neighborhood. After the presentation, there will be ample time for questions from the audience.

Presenters will be SoVerA members Alina Marsfelder and Rick Bates, as well as SoVerA President Patrick Porch. The three presenters have 50+ years of combined experience.’

Details for the ZOOM link can be found on the SoVerA website in the calendar section.

This is also a great time of year to join SoVerA; it will allow you to begin your 2021 membership early, giving you the rest of 2020 and all of 2021 for one price. Details can be found here.
