We will be at the Roper Mountain Science Center for this meeting!

At this month's meeting we have Jack Dunn from the Midlands Astronomy Club speaking to us via Zoom about electronically assisted astronomy.  He will compare his own SeeStar S50 to 3 other electronic telescopes, the Vespera, the eVscopes, and the Dwarf 2.

Jack Dunn's Bio

From the early A/V era of planetariums to current digital technology, I have operated for over 40 years, usually having to make the most out of limited finances and resources. Connections and contacts have always played a huge role in making it possible to keep advancing my abilities and opportunities for the Planetarium. My goals are to always remain connected to the pulse of my profession - whether it is the technology or the presentation techniques.

Specialties: video and audio editing. Creating fulldome content from 2d materials. Creating laser displays in planetariums with Pangolin Beyond software for fun. Helping small planetariums realize their potential.

I am Australian Paul Bourke's US Collaborator to help planetarians in the US learn how to build spherical mirror projection systems.

Having retired from UNL, I now independently consult and volunteer to assist my wife Liz Klimek who is Planetarium Manager at the Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina Planetarium at the South Carolina State Museum. I continue to attend Planetarium conferences and help fellow planetarians around the world.
