Rhodes College Virtual Tour and Telescope Session

Ever wondered what’s inside the shiny silver dome on the Rhodes campus? Here’s your chance to find out. We’ll take a tour of the equipment in the Rhodes College observatory and learn how the systems are integrated to make a fully-functional observatory. We’ll also talk about image acquisition and processing. Weather-permitting, we’ll have a live demo and look at a few objects in the sky.

Presenter:
Ann Viano, Ph.D.
Associate & Lester Crain Professor
Rhodes College Department of Physics

For everyone’s safety, all public observing events are canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
