The Stars of Autumn
Join us as we explore the stars, asterisms and constellations of the autumn sky. Learn how to find some of the great deep sky objects that can be seen in the night skies of the autumn months.
A brief introduction to observing with a beginner's telescope will walk you through how to setup and use a telescope to observe the Moon, Planets and the brighter deep sky objects.
