Star Parties

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

On any night during which the sky is sufficiently clear, I will host a star party using my Celestron 5SE Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and Stellarium running on my laptop, so that others can determine, at a glance, the celestial objects that are above the horizon at that place and time. I will also introduce others to astrophotography by mounting my Canon DSLR camera to the back of the telescope. This is an ideal time and place for a star party, since we will be at high elevation and away from light pollution, and Porcfest XI occurs during a new moon (ensuring dark skies). There are a lot of nice deep sky objects visible in late June.
