CourseGraphic Wondrous Fall Skies
This two week course is an introduction to viewing the fall skies as seen from San Mateo and the northern California area.   We will be using our Chronos/Hybrid system consisting of a GOTO Chronos optomechanical star projector and an RSA Cosmos digital video projector to project stars onto our planetarium dome, to show you the night sky.   In addition, I will show you how to use your planisphere or Sky Wheel to locate the stars and constellations.   If the sky is clear, we will view Saturn and the Moon in our rooftop observatory.
*Please obtain planisphere from CSM bookstore before the first class
