Spring Telescope Clinic

This post is more than 60 days old and may no longer be the most up-to-date content. For event related posts, please check for a newer article to avoid confusion on times and locations.

Join the Hamilton Amateur Astronomers this April 7 for our Spring telescope clinic! This year our format is a little different and we’ll have scope-stations setup each covering different aspects of telescopes. Move from station to stating to get a comprehensive understanding of many telescope types, eyepieces, and approaches to astrophotography. Bring your questions and curiosity as many amateur astronomers will be on hand to help you either get into astronomy or expand your existing experience.

  • 1:30pm, Barry Shermann, Introduction to Telescope Types
  • 2:00pm, Matthew Mannering, Introduction to Eyepieces
  • 2:30pm, Kevin Salwach, Binoculars Astronomy
  • 3:00pm, Sue McLachlan, The Beginning Astronomer’s Library
  • 3:30pm, Bernie Venasse, Approaches to Astrophotograhy

Admission is free so bring your family and friends!
