      Binocular Astronomy

      Binocular AstronomyMonday November 18 from 7-9pm$39.00Sure, binoculars aren't exactly the Hubble Space Telescope, but they are actually quite capable astronomical instruments that provide a unique and refreshing view of the Celestial Heavens. When both of your eyes get involved with seeing, a synergy takes place in your brain that enhances the image beyond what a single retina can deliver.  They are easy to use, highly portable, require little maintenance and come in a great variety of designs and price ranges.In this age or rampant light pollution, binoculars can provide the extra edge necessary to see beyond the few hundred stars (at best) offered by 21st century urban skies to see some of the wonders of skies from decades past.  Even common binoculars will reveal the constellations more intimately, the phases of Venus or the moons of Jupiter.  There are even dozens of deep sky objects (galaxies, nebulae, and such) visible in expensive binoculars.Large or small, name brand or not, bring along your binoculars; we might actulayy be able to do some viewing if the weatherman permits.  If you are in the market for binoculars and would like to find out what kind would be most practical for you, come join the party.  And, oh, by the way, we'll talk quite a bit about the sky as well!  There's a lot more up there than you might realize!About Your Instructor: Dave Bosse is an Instructor of Astronomy at the University of Cincinnati and has been teaching there for 40 years.Enrich your life with UC Continuing Education's exciting array of noncredit short, yet in-depth courses and educational opportunities designed for diverse audiences of all ages.To register call 513-556-6932 or select your course(s) online and click Register
