7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

At The Bishop


On the second Wednesday of each month from 7 to 9 pm, we transform the Bishop Planetarium into a forum for discussions at think + drink (science), a place where you can grab a beer or a glass of wine (or a soft drink) and learn about cutting-edge science in a relaxed, informal setting. Typically our “expert du jour” gives a short presentation on the topic of the month, and then opens the floor for questions and discussion.

November 14: Making the Most of Viewing the Night Sky: Choosing and Using Telescopes

Ed McDonough is a Regional Sales Manager for Celestron, a leading manufacturer and distributor of telescopes from beginner level to research grade. Ed is also an active hobbyist well-versed in the use and operation of many types of telescopes. Ed’s mission is to make sure that no telescope languishes in a garage due to its owner’s confusion!
