LVAAS General Meeting
Sunday, March 14 at 7:00 p.m.
An Introduction to Deep Sky Observing
So you've looked at the Moon and the planets with your telescope, what else is there to see?
Plenty! Nebulae, star clusters, dying stars and galaxies are all visible in amateur telescopes.
This talk will introduce each type of object, describe what they are and give some bright and
easy to find examples. Some practical tips for beginning deep sky observers are also given.
An amateur astronomer for more than 50 years, Bill was employed as a software engineer in the electron optics division of the David Sarnoff Research Center in Princeton for 18 years.
