Urban Astronomer’s Survival Guide

urban-stargazersSo what can you see in light-polluted urban and suburban skies?  Enough for a lifetime of viewing. With a small telescope, you can see hundreds of star clusters, galaxies, nebulae, and double stars. Not to mention the Moon and planets. There is no shortage of things to see. It’s just a matter of getting out there and seeing it.

This bonus lesson consists of a recording and transcript of a one-hour audio teleconference with Rod Mollise (rhymes with ‘police’), an expert urban stargazer, author, and teacher with 40 years of experience.  Rod wrote the excellent book “The Urban Astronomer’s Guide”.  But he reveals his best tips here for you.
