Nancy Cole and I represented NEKAAL at KU’s book signing by author Michael Byers. His novel is based heavily on the life of Clyde Tombaugh and his journeys before and after the discovery of Pluto.
Here’s a few pics from tonight. More to follow.
Most of the time we meet at the Topeka Shawnee County Public Library, however this month we’ll be meeting at Farpoint Observatory.
Several knowledgeable club members will be prepared to show and explain many of the astronomy and telescope basics to get you started. The club has a 14″ Meade, 8″ Meade, the 27″ Tombaugh, and binoculars. Many other members are bringing their telescopes as well. Have always wanted to know how to operate a telescope you own or one of the clubs telescopes? Are you interested in learning constellations, using a plane-sphere, or star chart? Do you want to see different telescopes to get an idea what would be best for you? Are you interested in seeing how use a astronomy CCD camera? Have you always wanted to know something a fellow member knows but have not had the opportunity to ask? If you answered yes to any of these questions I hope to see you April 28th 7:00pm at Farpoint Observatory, rain or shine.
