February 13, 2021: 20-year Review of Newtonian Thermal Management

Our talk for this month will be given by Bryan Greer. Bryan is a past president of the Columbus Astronomical Society and has authored several Sky & Telescope articles on thermal management of telescopes. An engineer by training, he was an editor for H.R. Suiter’s book “Star Testing Astronomical Telescopes” (Willmann-Bell). He’s the president of Flexible Precision, Inc., a rapid-prototyping and engineering company. He lives with his wife Sarah, son Elliot, and their pug Bosley, and enjoys many hobbies including model railroading, 3D graphics/animation, and flight simulation.

Bryan will provide a brief review of what goes on inside your telescope from a thermal perspective, how much it affects the image quality, a few myths, and some simple remedies.

Please join us for a “20-year Review of Newtonian Thermal Management” February 13th at 8pm.

This meeting will be hosted on Zoom and broadcast live through the Columbus Astronomical Society Facebook page and will later be published on the CAS YouTube page.
