Virtual Star Party – July 28, 2013

In case you missed it live, here was our Virtual Star Party for Sunday, July 28, 2013. We had two active telescopes going, but they were highly automated scopes slewing from target to target with precise efficiency. We probably hit a new record this week, with the number of objects we targeted. We had nebulae, galaxies, star clusters and special appearances from Neptune… and Pluto; our first of the season!

Host: Fraser Cain

Astronomers: Gary Gonella, Louis Mamakos

Commentary: Dr. Thad Szabo, Stuart Forman

We get together every Sunday night for a Virtual Star Party in a live Google+ Hangout on Air. You can watch live, and ask your questions about astronomy and astrophotography; we’ll even take requests.

We’ll broadcast the video live from here on Universe Today, or over on Google+.

If you’re an astronomer and have the ability to view images from your telescope on your computer, we’d love to have you join us some week. Especially if you live in Europe or South America.
