This program is primarily for adults who are interested in telescopes or considering purchasing a telescope for themselves or family. A short pictorial power point illustrating the three basic types of telescopes and what could be a good match for a purchase, followed by a mini version show of the Starry Night astronomy program. Telescopes will be demonstrated: a reflector on an equatorial mount, a refractor on an altazimuth mount, and a catadioptric (compound) on an altazimuth mount. Also shown will be various telescope eyepieces, moon light filters, sun safety viewing filter, and astronomy guide apps available for smart phones. Bruce Stedman, Presenter. This program will take place in the Selma Burke Room, located on the library’s main floor.
