SkyTools for Visual
by Craig Lamison
Planning and logging your observing sessions are critical skills that new astronomers need to master in order to both help you use your dark sky time most efficiently and to document your observations. As an example, all Astronomical League observing programs require that records of each individual observation be completed as proof the observation was completed successfully.
Craig Lamison will show us how to plan and log an observing session using an app called SkyTools. According to the publisher – “SkyTools is the premier software for observing. It is not a mere planetarium or a planner, but software designed to aid in every aspect of astronomical observing.”
Novice meetings will be held virtually via Zoom, and live streamed on the HAS Facebook page. You must register for this presentation in order to attend. You may do so by using the link below:
Please watch your email, as you should also receive an email inviting you attend. The email will include any up to date changes (if any) on meeting times etc. You may also register using the link in the email, however it is only necessary to register once.
We'll have the online chat feature available to us during the talk, and once the presentation is over, we can open up the audio lines for more questions. I'm excited that this we're able to get together in this fashion, and I hope you can join us then. We hope to see you online with us on Thursday evening November 3rd!
