Observing the Night Sky With Free Open-Source Software

Tim T., Will M., Kenny L., Others TBA

[geek:2]

Celebrate the 2017 solar eclipse with an introduction to popular free/open-source software packages designed for amateur astronomers and space enthusiasts of all kinds. Join us to learn about stargazing, finding stellar objects, automated telescope control, tracking the International Space Station and other orbital objects, learning about the moon, and more.

Each presenter will show you how to get free astronomical software for Linux, Mac, and Windows, and demonstrate key features of major packages such as Celestia, Stellarium, KStars, GPredict, and more.

 
 

A flyer may be available, if you'd like to print it and post it!
