LVAAS General Meeting
Sunday June 11, 7 p.m. at LVAAS South Mountain Grady Planetarium
and on Zoom.
"Optics: Bringing Photons to your Retina Since 1610"
Joe will begin with a brief review of the anatomy and physiology of the human eye. He will then go into various devices used in Astronomy and how their optics vary. He will then transition into a discussion of light transmission and how optics and conditions affect what we see and image.
Joe's interest in Astronomy began in High School where there was a planetarium and a 20" Newtonian Reflector. Joe further developed this interest in College obtaining a BS in Physics from Penn State University. He then went on to get his MD at Hahnemann University (now Drexel University) followed by doing a 5 year General Surgery Residency. Joe has been a practicing General Surgeon since 1988. After College, Joe's interest in Physics and Astrophysics continued as he tried to follow the Sciences as they developed and made further discoveries. In 2018 Joe learned of LVAAS and became a member to further his knowledge of Astronomy.
