Summer Smorgasbord: The Ultimate Two-Hour Telescope Presentation
For most amateur astronomers (and many professionals) the telescope is a surprisingly misunderstood instrument. Yet it is the fundamental tool for all astronomers. By the end of this talk, you'll know everything you've ever wanted to know about telescopes and a lot you were unaware of. Among the topics covered will be the telescope's origins, fundamentals of telescope optics, how to select the right telescope, how to maintain a telescope and properly diagnose problems. This presentation is for the total newbie all the way up to the most advanced observer. Taught by Bart Fried, the Executive Vice-President of the AAA.
