Stargazers Wanted!

Depauville Free Library is working with local, sidewalk astronomer, Tom Aiken, to organize looks into the night sky.

We are asking that interested stargazers send their email addresses to so we can send out word when and where Tom will be setting up his telescope. Since good observations depend upon good weather conditions, emails are the best way to organize a star party at a moments notice.

Tom Aiken and his Dobsonian telescope that took him 20 years to build, have logged many hours introducing people to celestial wonders. The telescope uses a mirrored system as opposed to lenses and is designed to be portable and with a large aperture. It’s good for observing dim, deep sky objects, like the belts, the rings, around Saturn and the moons circling around the planets.

Set up like a gun turret, with a simple mount that rotates vertically and horizontially, the Dobsonian telescope, first created by John Dobson in the 1960s, allows side-to-side motion to vary the azimuth or compass bearing in any direction and up-and-down flexibility to vary the altitude or angle of elevation of the insturment.

You can bring your own telescope or binochulars, too. Which ever you decide, the  following are some of the highlights we hope to observe in the upcoming year.
