Remote Viewing Live from New Mexico with Brian Ottum
September 25 @ 10:00 pm - 11:59 pm
Dr. Brian Ottum is a member of the University Lowbrows. Brian will show you deep-sky objects via his remotely controlled telescope located at Dark Sky New Mexico. If we’re lucky, Brian will be able to track an Earth-orbiting satellite!
Brian has been a familiar figure a previous Astronomy at the Beach events – he could be seen at his booth (usually set up inside, where it was warm) selling his stunning astrophotos.

About the cover image: The Andromeda Galaxy (M31) is one of our closest galactic neighbors, just 2.5 million light-years away. We are on a collision course, but it won’t happen for a few billion years. Brian took this shot through his 10” f/5 reflector, on a Michigan-made PlaneWave L-350, with a Canon 5DmkIII. About ten hours’ worth of individual images were added together to make this shot.
