BSIG January 2023 Zoom Presentation – “Aids to Navigating the Night Sky” by Steve Emert

January 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST

BSIG Beginner’s Special Interest Group Zoom Presentation

Aids to Navigating the Night Sky

Featured Speaker: Steve Emert

Synopsis: We have so many more options to navigate the sky now than when I started in this hobby twenty years ago – in the days before smartphones and when PC power was much more limited. In this January 7 Zoom meeting let’s talk about how we can use both some of the printed aids like Sky Atlas 2000 and the Mag 7 Star Atlas and PC-based aids like the freeware Cartes du Ciel and Stellarium and smartphone apps like Star Walk, SkySafari Pro and SkyPortal to plan our observing sessions and get the most out of our stargazing experience.
