We’ve put the finishing touches on the updated version of Fundamentals of Stargazing
, our online course for those with a keen desire to look up and see the universe for themselves. It’s finally ready to go
for 2022 for stargazers in the northern AND southern hemispheres.
Fundamentals of Stargazing breaks down the basics of backyard astronomy into easy-to-understand pieces each month.
As a member of this course, you receive detailed sky tours throughout the year.
You discover how to choose and use the best binoculars, telescopes, and accessories for your personal situation.
And you get little glimpses of the science of stargazing to help you understand how things work in the night sky.
The course also shows you how to find and enjoy hundreds of beautiful and astounding sights beyond the solar system.
It even helps you, if you are so inclined, to capture your first ‘snapshot astrophotos’ of the night sky!
Here’s what one recent student said of the course:
“‘Fundamentals of Stargazing’ is well designed and assembled with heaps of information... and it has enough stimulating challenges to hook you into becoming a more adventurous and informed stargazer. The most valuable aspect was having someone available and prepared to answer any question. This has been a most worthwhile and enriching experience for me.”
Once a year, for a couple of weeks, Fundamentals of Stargazing
becomes available at a discounted price
, and to a limited number of new students. When it’s full, it closes for the year.
If you're at a point in your life where understanding and meaning are paramount, and you're in a position to devote a little time to studying the night sky, then I urge you to learn more about the course at the link below...
