Adirondack Stargazing

At the Keene Valley library summer lecture series finale, I presented slides and demonstrated telescope equipment before an eager audience. Local astronomers Kevin and Chris participated, each showing off their telescopes outside the Keene Valley and Keene Town libraries immediately following the presentation. The clouds held off just long enough to see views of Jupiter and a few other objects.

Topics included a discussion of our beautiful dark Adirondack sky and the danger of loosing it to light pollution, followed by a showing of several long exposure photographs taken from Norton Cemetery.

Some have asked for the slides, which I’m providing here.
