Friday 30 September from 7:30 pm to 10:00 pm No admission fee. For ages twelve and older.
The Baton Rouge Astronomical Society knows you’re looking for equipment!
Binoculars = They are lightweight, relatively cheap, easy to use, easy to transport and easy to store.
Telescopes = Is bigger better? How much should you spend?
Eyepieces = Most new telescopes come with two but you can purchase more to yield different magnifications.
Filters = The intermediate skygazers can use filters to lessen the deleterious effects of light pollution, increase the contrast of Jupiter♃’s cloud decks, hunt for lunar dorsae and catch very small lunar craters!
7:30 pm to 8:30 pm = Advice for buying new and used binoculars, telescopes, eyepieces and filters.
8:30 pm = predicted magnitude 1.2 pass of the Hubble Space Telescope
8:45 pm to 10:00 pm = sample sky viewing with four amateur telescopes
This seminar will not cover photographic equipment.
