Your eyes- a users guide to visual astronomy


The talk will concentrate on the anatomy and physiology of the eye and vision and how to maximize the eyes capabilities for astronomical observing. I’ll also demonstrate the various things that can go wrong with our eyes and how to reduce or eliminate these detrimental conditions. Finally we will apply what we’ve learned to actual observation and use of a telescope. 


I am a practicing optometrist and have taught astronomy at the college level. I’ve been presidents of several large Astro clubs including NOVAC, and had observing privileges at USNO.
