Telescopes 101 Follow-up and thank you
« on: November 14, 2019, 10:55:18 am »
Last night's Telescopes 101 event at the Bishop Planetarium, led by LGDSO member Ed McDonough, was a big success!

I don't have the final count, but when I was up in front talking to the audience, I'd estimate there were easily somewhere between 70 and 80 people in attendance.

And even though we had a handful of members who had planned to set up their scopes on the sidewalk outside the planetarium's entrance, the weather was totally uncooperative--so all of the telescopes that were there were set up inside the lobby for demonstration and Q&A, both before and after the scheduled program.

And WOW, did that go well! I think the people who came in order to learn about telescopes got far more than they ever expected.

Thank you to all who participated in this great event!

Jonathan Sabin,
LGDSO President

Thanks Jonathan. LGDSO really shined last night. We should all be very proud of the effort. I look forward to the Astro Imaging Workshop on January 8th.
