Overview
What to Expect
Itinerary

We invite you for a special meeting by night; a meeting to look at the sky full of stars, planets and constellations visible from the Northern Hemisphere, from 45 degrees N, that is exactly half way between the Equator and the North Pole. The invitation is for those that desire to explore with us the night sky. We use a Celestron NexStar 8SE telescope with 200 mm(8 inches) lens and electronic focuser, dual servo motors, a reflecting scope of 90 mm and, most importantly, a guide that will introduce you to the mysteries of the night sky.
We learn about the night sky, we learn how to recognize the constellations, stars and planets, but also about movement of the stars, time, Earth rotation. We will look at the constellations visible all year-round in the Northern Hemisphere, like Ursa Major (Big Dipper), Ursa Minor(Little Dipper) with his Pole Star,
Cassiopeia, Draco, Cepheus, and, depending on season, Andromeda, Pegasus, Perseus, Orion, Canis Major, Gemini, Hercules Ophiucus. And with the help of the telescope we will go into a new world, we'll see Messier and NGC objects, nebulae and star clusters that we will see with our own eyes, like probably never before.
