The talk will describe and show examples of the types of telescopes now available for use by amateurs to observe the planets, stars and galaxies along with their relative strengths and weaknesses.
Telescopes must be mounted to track objects across the sky, and these too will be demonstrated. Now usually computer controlled, they can be used to automatically find objects in the heavens to make the most of your observing time.
Following the 50 minute talk there will be a 30 minute question and answer session to address your particular queries about telescopes and observing and then, if clear, we will do some observing.
Speaker - Emeritus professor Ian Morison
