My talk at RTMC 2016

May 19, 2016


Noted astronomy author and speaker Ken Graun kindly asked if I’d be interested in giving one of the beginners’ talks at this year’s Riverside Telescope Makers’ Conference (RTMC), which will run from next Friday, May 27, through Sunday, May 29. My talk, which will run from 10:00-11:30 AM in Bose Lodge, is titled, “The Scale of the Cosmos”. It will be about using popular observing lists like the Messier Catalogue to understand the universe and our place in it. If any of you will be at RTMC, I’ll look forward to seeing you! You can learn more about the conference and register here.

  1. Congrats on finally making it out to RTMC! I will be heading out to Lebec in Kern County this Memorial Day Weekend, unless there is a drastic change in the weather forecast for Big Bear City.

  2. Don’t forget the swap meet at RTMC – hope you pick up some cool stuff at cool prices. Get there early to pick up the best stuff!
