Star-Hopping with Stellarium – Adrian Bradley
September 26 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Stellarium is a free open-source planetarium app that many astronomers use frequently. Stellarium allows you to see the sky from any point on Earth and any time of day. You can use it to see what will be in the sky tonight, or next month, and plan observing sessions. Stellarium can add newly discovered objects, like comets, from an IAU Minor Planet Center online catalog, and can add multi-megabyte-sized catalogs of additional stars. Stellarium has numerous plugins that add additional features and functionality, and has a large user community.
Adrian Bradley is the 2020 president of the Great Lakes Association of Astronomy clubs and a member of the University Lowbrows. Adrian will demonstrate how Stellarium can control your telescope equipped with a computer-controlled mount (a goto-telescope).
