Presentation: Remote Astronomy

Now days anyone can connect to a telescope under the clear dark skies of California, Arizona or New Mexico as if they were in your backyard.

Our speaker this month is Tom Carrico, a retired Electrical Engineer and amateur astrophotographer. Tom will describe his experiences using “hosted equipment” all over the Southwest United States.
