Nature Series – Astronomy Program: Craters of the Moon
Friday, April 27, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Join GARNA and Central Colorado Humanists for Scott Adams’ final astronomy program in Chaffee County. He will present an introduction to astronomy from the back yard astronomer’s point of view. Highlights of the talk include a review of various types of telescopes including GARNA’s new Orion 10 EQ-G 10” Reflector Scope. According to Scott “This scope’s huge 10″ optics and precise, heavy-duty computerized GoTo mount will show you what big-telescope performance is all about”. The program will also include types of deep space objects “out there”, and provide comparisons of what viewers actually see through amateur telescopes versus professional telescopes. Scott pursued a 31-year career as a petroleum geophysicist, geologist, exploration program manager and reservoir manager with Chevron Corporation, with numerous domestic and international assignments. He has given several talks on earth, life sciences and photography for GARNA, the Salida Sunday Science forum, Columbine Gem and Mineral Club, and the Geologists of Jackson Hole. Scott and his wife are moving out of state therefore this will be his last GARNA presentation. From 7:00 to 7:45 pm, Scott will present on backyard astronomy. Moon gazing with the Orion Atlas EQ-G 10 will follow. Both the presentation and stargazing will take place at Scott’s home located just outside of Salida. Registration and more information.
