Main Talk: "A Tour of Chile with Sky & Telescope Magazine" by Jerry Dunifer Jerry will talk about his experiences on a tour of Chile in March 2017 to visit several major astronomical observatories. The tour was arranged by Sky & Telescope magazine, and the group leader was Kelly Beatty, one of the Senior Editors of the publication. Sites visited included Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory, La Silla Observatory, Gemini South Observatory, and the ALMA Observatory. ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array) is a linked array of dozens of individual telescopes which constitutes the largest, the most-expensive, and the most-sensitive radio telescope in the World. The talk will also describe some side trips to visit some unique sites of interest in Chile including the highest and largest geyser field in the Southern Hemisphere and an extensive stone and sand formation known as the Valley of the Moon. Jerry Dunifer is a Professor Emeritus at Wayne State University. He was a member of the faculty in the Department of Physics & Astronomy for 35 years before retirement. While active in the Department he served as a Professor and Associate Chair of the Department for several years. His research program there involved the study of the electrical and magnetic properties of high-purity metals at a temperature of 1 Kelvin. He also played an active role in the astronomy programs of the Department, including the WSU Planetarium and telescopic observing facilities. Since retirement, one of Jerry’s hobbies has been visiting a number of the major and historic astronomy observatories around the World. He has visited dozens of different sites and has traveled as far as the geographic South Pole and the geographic North Pole. And many places in-between. ________________________________ The views expressed in presentations are those of the speakers and do not necessarily represent, and should not be attributed to, the Warren Astronomical Society.

Did you or your kids get a telescope for Christmas or have you got one sitting in your office or basement that you don’t know what to do with? With all the excitement about the supermoon-total lunar eclipse-blue moon event coming to the sky this Wednesday, Jan. 31, there’s more interest than ever in astronomical events, especially a rare one like this that brings the mysteries of space right into our own backyard. This is one time you might really enjoy using a small telescope or binoculars, although this full moon event may not show the spectacular shadowy details of the moon as clearly as when it’s in a different phase than full. “The moon is the best thing to look at through a telescope,” said Richard Walker, former Longway Planetarium manager in Flint. “It’s big, bright and easy to find the details, especially at the moon’s shadowy edges. But the worst time to look at the moon through a telescope is a full moon. The sun is shining straight down and you can’t see any shadows.” This is just one of the things that you can learn from Walker during a telescope workshop, set for this Saturday, Jan. 27 at Longway Planetarium in Flint, to help people who may have gotten telescopes as Christmas gifts. “If there’s enough interest, I’ll do another in February or March,” he said. Walker, 64, admits he’s an avid amateur astronomer as well as a collector and builder of telescopes. “I got my first telescope at age 7,” he said. “I’ve owned around 25 and have built several myself.” He admits that telescopes can be a little intimidating, especially for a beginner. Walker tells workshop participants to bring all the pieces and parts along with their telescope, and then shares with them, “here’s what you can throw away. If you don’t set them up correctly, it’s nearly impossible to use them.” He admits that directions given with telescopes usually are confusing and poorly written. “If you’re interested, read magazines like ‘Astronomy’ or ‘Sky and Telescope,’” he said. In addition to looking at the moon, Walker advises novice astronomers to take their telescopes outdoors on a clear Michigan morning at 7 a.m. and look for the planet Jupiter high in the southeast sky. “It will look like the brightest star you’ll see, you can’t miss it,” he said. “Jupiter has four large moons you should be able to see, and you can even see the cloud bands that look like stripes around the planet.” If you don’t have a telescope but would like to buy one, Walker said you should expect to pay $125 or more for a quality instrument. “Don’t worry about what the package says about magnification,” said Walker. “Look at the diameter of the mirror and get no smaller than 100 millimeters or 4-inches.” In the case of telescopes, bigger is always better, said Walker. “Get it so big until it’s too big to lift,” he said. Source: NASA.gov watch the ‘lunar trifecta’ on Wednesday, Jan. 31 The Jan. 31 full moon is special for three reasons: it’s the third in a series of “supermoons,” when the Moon is closer to Earth in its orbit — known as perigee — and about 14 percent brighter than usual. It’s also the second full moon of the month, commonly known as a “blue moon.” The super blue moon will pass through Earth’s shadow to give viewers in the right location a total lunar eclipse. While the Moon is in the Earth’s shadow, it will take on a reddish tint, known as a “blood moon.” This hasn’t happened for 150 years, so it’s literally “once in a blue moon.” Your best place to view this lunar event is at a high point or unobstructed area that offers a free sight to the west-northwest sky, according to timeanddate.com. These lunar events will be visible in the tri-county area with this schedule: 5:51 a.m. Penumbral eclipse begins 6:48 a.m. Partial eclipse begins, the moon is getting red 7:46 a.m. Maximal eclipse is visible, when the moon is close under the horizon 7:49 a.m. Moon sets, below the horizon 7:51 a.m. Total eclipse begins 8:29 a.m. Maximum eclipse 9:07 a.m. Total eclipse ends 10:11 a.m. Partial eclipse ends 11:08 a.m. Penumbral eclipse ends

In 1997 Patrick (and John Watson of Springer Verlag publishing) asked me to write a book in Patrick's Practical Astronomy Series called 'Astronomical Equipment for Amateurs'. It was published in late 1998 and proved popular, so Patrick asked me to appear with him on the December 1999 Sky at Night giving advice on buying a telescope for Xmas. Patrick had just endured a major knee replacement operation (in Sept 99) and turned up for the recording on December 4th with a black eye where he had fallen in the bath, as he was still very unsteady after the op! The make up lady managed to make the black eye totally invisible though! Once again the show was filmed in a straight take of a 20 minute chat between us and it was broadcast the next night, Dec 5/6. I was very pleased with this prog., not least because it was the very last Sky at Night of the 1900s. The studio was full of telescope boxes (out of camera shot). The big UK telescope dealers had sent crates full of their gear along to the show, hoping for a free plug! I think I remained suitably neutral in my opinions. The Radio Times for that week even mentioned my book, which was great! Patrick brought his childhood 3-inch refractor along that day in the chauffeur driven car the BBC had laid on to get him from Selsey to the TV Centre and back. The producer, Ian Russell, asked me if I knew any young astronomers who could be filmed outdoors testing telescopes at night. I suggested Patrick's young undergraduate apprentice Chris Lintott and his friend David Reid. But when Patrick heard of this idea he blocked it, totally, saying he wanted me to do the whole show, as with me involved no-one else was ever needed......!

Below are some of the telescopes I've used in recent years, ranging from ~30 -3000 dollars. (shortened for YTs character limits) Price $35 76mm reflector dobsonian mounted (Celestron Firstscope) Weight ~ 1kg (a couple of pounds) Setup time ~0 East of Transport 1 Short focal length- wide angle field of view. Finder not really necessary. Ultra cheap, good views of Moon, Jupiter Venus, rings of Saturn, bright, wide separation double stars, and brighter deep sky objects such as M13. I was not particularly impressed with the optics on mine, but for 35 bucks, you cant complain too much! Price $200 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain, dobsonian mount (Orion Apex) Weight ~ 1kg (a couple of pounds) Setup time ~0 East of Transport 1 Longer focal length means smaller field of view for comparable eye pieces. I was impressed with this scope on the planets. It vastly outperforms the Firstscope on optics. The scope comes off the dobsonian mount on a quick release and can be mounted as a spotter scope (the main reason I got it). The dobsonian mount here (one arm) is exactly the same as the mount for the Firstscope. These are sort of the poor mans refractor. Great views of Moon and all the bright planets. Picked out Titan (brightest moon of saturn) with ease. I got this telescope for two reasons, firstly for outreach, in that you can just grab it and point it in seconds, zero setup time. Secondly I can mount it piggyback on the CPC11 (see below) and use it as a spotting/ guide scope. The Maksutov has the 'nice' feature that its a closed tube(helps keep dust out). The Mak. will have the edge on planets/ guidescope etc due to its longer focal length, but the Newtonian will be more all around bang for the buck. Price $600 10in Newtonian reflector, dobsonian mount (Celestron Starhopper) Weight ~ 15kg (~30lbs) Setup time ~10 mins to carry parts outside, 10 mins + cool down. East of Transport: Telescope is about the size of a small child (although not that heavy). It is big and awkward. Difficult to handle for the small. Almost the biggest telescope you can fit in a compact car (the reason I got it). The long open optical train requires periodic alignment (columniation) if it is frequently transported. Powerful deep-sky scope. Near zero photographic potential, but fantastic views of nebula, globular clusters and galaxies. Great scope for planets too. At this size the moon is getting too bright to look at for any length of time. Like most big newtonians, short focal ratio, which pragmatically means you get quite wide angle views. Again well suited to deep sky observing. Price $1500 90mm (3.5in) Stellarvue apochromat, -no mount, tube only (Apo Triplet) Weight ~ 4kg (~8lbs) East of Transport: The telescope is small and easy to transport. Comes with a bag that will go on an airplane as hand baggage. Worth the price for the aperture? Probably not unless you are in a fairly specific niche. This makes a great wide angle lenses for guided photography. As a guidescope its focal length is kind of short. That basically means the field of view for a given eye piece is wide. You need a very short focal length eye piece to get good magnification. I found myself using a 4mm eyepiece to look at planets, and even at that the image was small. As a finder scope though, that wide field is great. The other thing that these scope gives is absolutely beautiful stellar images. The stars just fall into incredible pin pricks. Beautiful contrasty flat views. I found the use of the short focal length eyepieces annoying for planetary use. Lacks the light gathering for versatility as a deep sky instrument. I only really ever used this as a piggybacker for the CPC11 below. Price $2800 11in Schmidt Cassegrain, driven goto alt-az fork mount (CPC11) Weight ~ 30kg (~65lbs) and thats just the top section. Tripods another 15 kg I think. Setup time ~30 mins to carry parts outside and align, 20 mins + cool down. East of Transport: It will fit in a compact car. To carry the telescope any distance really isnt an option unless you are strong. The ergonomic design is very good though. I always found mounting up the scope a bit of a bitch. Aligning it is relatively easy as the scope mount has a GPS in it that means you dont have to plug in these numbers and the time. Alignment is quite easy. I found the scope slips relatively easily unless the clutches are done up very tight. The scope can carry quite a burden (although of course when the scope weights this much extra, it does need to be well balanced). At this level it is an excellent photographic platform. It yields amazing views of almost everything. It's photographic potential is probably as good as you can get from a portable platform. This is the instrument I used to do the full rotation of Jupiter, although there the primary limitation was the stability of the sky.

Hosted by David Fuller of "Eyes on the Sky," this video goes over the various sizes and types of basic eyepieces for many amateur telescopes. The three most common eyepiece barrel diameters are discussed, as well as the types of lens configurations which determine how well the eyepiece forms an image for the user - including the concept of eye relief which can matter a lot to those who wear eyeglasses. Discussed are Huygens, Ramsden, Kellner, RKE, Modified Achromat, Plossl and some advanced designs, plus some information about anti-reflection coatings. An excellent primer for anyone wanting to understand more about telescope eyepieces. #withcaptions
