Binocular Lunar Features

Post by Christopher K. » April 21st, 2017, 3:53 pm

There are three Bushnell 10x50s at BRAS' disposal in the HRPO staff area. (Members of the general public can check them out during programmed events.) I myself have an Explorer WA 10x50. With either of these instruments one can see easily features such as the Bay of Rainbows, and lunar rays criss-crossing the surface.

The presentation "Moon Watching" will happen at the Highland Road Park Observatory on Friday 5 May at 7:30pm. This brand-new lecture is customized to teach the beginning skygazer the basic forty or so unaided-eye and binocular lunar features, and how to see each of them throughout a lunar cycle. The talk is aimed at a general adult audience and has no admission fee.
