Will your presentation be at high level or something that a novice to variable stars can understand Jeremy,
not asking with any bias, just have no idea where it will be pitched?

It's entry level Alan. I'll talk about how you can do visual variable star observing with binos, small telescope or even naked eye (reference there to the recent fade of Betelgeuse).

No difficult astrophysics; just a mention of why these 2 stars vary and how amateurs can help unlock their secrets  🙂

Thanks Alan. You'd be most welcome. If use use the Zoom dial in option, you can ask Q's via the Q&A box if you like.

No can do the Zoom option as banned from it via work and my machine is used for work too.
So will be the YouTube option for me.

Mine too, Alan, but I run Zoom on my iPhone or iPad

Thanks Jeremy and your colleagues, enjoyed it and has whetted the appetite.
It did not go over my head, so thanks for where it was pitched.
I will have a read on the BAA section.

 

Thanks so much Alan!

Thanks Jeremy a very enjoyable webinar last night. I believe you pitched it at a perfect level for those of us without too much prior knowledge on variable stars.

Thanks Mark - appreciated 🙂

Indeed - I enjoyed it too (a welcome break from other stuff going on!) - thanks for putting it on! As a CCD observer, not two stars I'd often/ever observe as well 👍

Glad you enjoyed it.

the vast majority of my VS observing is CCD based. But I find it’s nice to have a handful of visual targets to follow.
