20141006 – Jon Blum – Choosing and Using Telescope Eyepieces

Jon Blum will give the short presentation, “Telescope Eyepieces”. This talk is intended primarily for beginners who would like to learn how to choose additions to their eyepiece collection, but everyone who has looked through an eyepiece will find it of interest. It will include how and why to calculate eyepiece magnification, field of view, and other characteristics that will help you decide which eyepieces are worth buying. Specific eyepieces from Jon’s collection will be reviewed.

Jon has always been interested in astronomy, but only has had time to devote to the hobby since he retired 12 years ago. He has been a WAS member for ten years. He was a WAS vice president in 2010-2011 and president in 2012-2013. His favorite part of astronomy is chatting with other amateur astronomers. To that end, he recently appointed himself as the one-person welcoming committee for new people at WAS meetings.

If you would like to present either a short talk (10-15 minutes) or a full-length talk (45-60 minutes) at a future meeting, please email firstvp@warrenastro.org.
