Observing at Mt. Stony Brook and Other Activities of The Astronomy Club
For this week's open night, Matthew Wahl, Jonathan Ullman, Shannon Hicks, and Adam Siegel will be talking about what observational projects are being conducted at Mt. Stony Brook; as well as what other activities The Astronomy Club is involved in. Learn about image analysis, color filters, using a camera to observe with a telescope, and the basic fundamentals of a CCD camera.
The Astronomy Club was formed about two years ago and has been gaining momentum every since. Dedicated to bringing further understanding of the universe to the undergraduates of Stony Brook University, the club meets weekly to keep up with the current events in astronomy.
