Two fresh articles for amateur astronomers are available on site05.18.2015
In our May update of the “Good to Know” section we decided to concentrate on astronomy and once again encourage and support beginning and amateur astronomers in their endeavors.
If you are thinking of buying a telescope, but you can’t tell an eyepiece from an objective and don’t know where to start, try reading our fresh article – “A telescope: how to start observing”. After reading it you will be better prepared for your first observations, as the article truthfully describes the whole process from the very beginning including the pitfalls that may come your way. As the article focuses on the most important basics of astronomical observations, it will be especially useful for first-time observers. The second article addresses urban observations and is intended for those telescope users who already have some experience.
If you are an urban citizen and you love astronomy you will find a lot of useful information on urban stargazing in our newly published article, “Astronomical observations in the city”. Of course, big cities with their heavily light-polluted skies impose certain limitations. But if you know what celestial objects to observe, where to find the right spot for your observing sessions, and what equipment to use – then you will be able to get maximum joy and fun observing the night sky in the city. Read this article and learn more about urban stargazing.
