April 02, 2020, 7:00PM: HAS April Monthly Meeting - Novice Presentation


All About Telescopes

Speaker – Debbie Moran – HAS Novice Chairperson

Zoom Meeting 

Since we're all practicing safe social distancing, we have decided to bring our April Novice meeting to you virtually through the Zoom online meeting platform!  The meeting is this Thursday, April 2 at 7:00 PM CDT, and to attend, you'll need to register using the link below.  Please register soon so we know how many people to expect.




After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.  At 7:00 PM on Thursday (or a few minutes beforehand) click on that link to join the meeting and listen in on Debbie Moran's presentation.


Debbie's presentation, called "All About Telescopes," is a tutorial for the beginner just getting started with observing.  It will tell you everything you need to know about the different optical designs of telescopes, the terminology involved, how to choose eyepieces, how to use the different kinds of finders, and when and how to use filters, in short an overview of everything you need to know about telescopes.


We'll have the online chat feature available to us during the talk, and once the presentation is over, we can open up the audio lines for more questions.  I'm excited that this we're able to get together in this fashion, and I hope you can join us then.  We hope to see you online with us on Thursday evening!
