S678: Intro to Telescopes & Observing in Splash 2023 (Apr. 22, 2023)
In this class, we will uncover basic optics principles, discuss different types of telescopes, mounts, and lenses, and learn to effectively observe the vast night sky! While we will be covering a lot of material during this class, I will not be assuming any background knowledge of the topics and there will be no prerequisites to participate. Join me to learn how best to appreciate our vast, beautiful universe and to step into the shoes of an astronomer!
