SAS Member Nick Monkman imparts a bit of newfound wisdom on the virtues and pitfalls of all-manual astronomy. He’ll discuss how to get oriented under a dark sky using nothing but your knowledge of the celestial sphere and a planisphere. This talk is geared towards beginners (after all, the presenter is one!) – but Nick is hoping the more experienced members of the club will jump in and answer questions and share their experiences.
