Southern Vermont Astronomy Group’s November meeting topic is “Getting Started in Astronomy.”

The presentation will include information on how to begin backyard viewing even before getting any sort of telescope.

There will be basic information on the various types of telescope available to the amateur astronomer and a discussion of related equipment.

By the end of the presentation, viewers should be equipped to begin viewing the night sky in their own neighborhood.

After the presentation, there will be ample time for questions from the audience.

Presenters will be SoVerA members Alina Marsfelder and Rick Bates, and SoVerA president Patrick Porch.

The meeting will be presented via Zoom at 7 p.m., on Tuesday, Nov. 10.

The Zoom link can be found at the SoVerA website in the calendar section –
