Slide Presentation & Star Night, St. Thomas Field Naturalist Club, May 1st, 2015

RASC London Centre member Peter Jedicke made his digital slide presentation “Our Wonderful Heavens” before some 55 members of the St. Thomas Field Naturalist Club in the basement room of Knox Presbyterian Church in St. Thomas, Friday, May 1st, 2015, 19:30h.  He was joined by fellow London Centre members Steve Imrie and Dennis Giasson.

Steve hosted a short observing session in the church parking lot after Peter’s slide talk, and was joined by Dennis.  Setting up his Orion SkyQuest 8-inch (203mm) Dobsonian, Steve showed people the 2-day-prior-to full gibbous Moon, using his 25mm eyepiece (48X) and then doubling the magnification with his 2X Barlow lens (96X) as well as Venus and Jupiter (96X).
