“Using Cassiopeia As A Guidepost”

In-Reach Coordinator Bill “Mr. Bill” Stevens will teach us how to use the constellation Cassiopeia to find other constellations using his “Cassiopeia Guide Post” hand out and hands-on training.  Mr. Bill will provide two or three telescopes, describe how to use them safely and with care.  A pair of binoculars will also be available, and he asks you to bring your own binoculars if you so desire.

This In-Reach event will be very informative for members who are new to astronomy, and a good refresher for those who have not observed in recent years.

Be sure to dress in layers in case the temperatures drop, and feel welcome to bring snacks for yourself or to share with others.

The DAS InReach activity is a member and guest event designed especially to provide those who are new to the DAS or who are beginning astronomers with information on all aspects of amateur astronomy including telescope operation, object selection and finding, visual astronomical observing and imaging. Specific topics vary from month to month.
