Free Stargazing Talk - Binocular Astronomy

The next public stargazing talk is titled "Binocular Astronomy".

Date: Saturday, 6 September 2014
Time: 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Venue: Toa Payoh Public Library. Level 1 Programme Zone.

Admission is free. No pre-registration required. Late-comers welcomed!

Enjoy looking through the telescope with one eye?

Why not use both of them through a binocular?

In this talk, you will learn how to observe the sky with a pair of binocular and how to choose a pair that is suitable for you if you intend to get one in the future.

Come attend this info-taining multimedia talk and discover these treasures in the sky that looks amazing especially through a pair of binocular. Participants will also be taught how to read a printed sky map which will be distributed during the talk (while stock lasts).

Since it is also Mid-Autumn Festival (aka Mooncake Festival), I will also talk about some interesting lunar facts near the end of the talk.

On the same evening, there is mid-autumn festival celebration just outside Toa Payoh Public Library. There will be a stargazing booth managed by members from Singastro Forum. Weather permitting, do take a look at the stars, moon and planets through these telescopes!
