Summer Astronomy Presentations

We have full slate of presentations at our meeting this summer. Nathan Woelfle will be doing a three part presentation called Understanding Scales and Measurements, Astronomy and Imaging Vocabulary. 

At our July Meeting, part one will covers telescopes and discusses aperture, focal length, focal ratio, eyepieces, field-of-view, magnification, arc minutes, seconds, and degrees. 

 Part two in August covers visual and discusses seeing, transparency, darkness, and magnitude. Part three in September covers imaging and discusses Dawes limit, image scale, resolution field-of-view, sensitivity.

The Lowcountry Stargazers will hold their next meeting on Thursday, July 11th at 7pm, at Atlantic Aviation, 6060 S Aviation Ave, North Charleston, SC 29406. This may be a better representation of our meeting location
