Sunshine Coast Astronomy presents: Randall Rosenfeld – Dorner Telescope Museum

December 10, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Via Zoom, RASC presents Randall Rosenfeld telling the story of the telescope in Canada.

Telescopes and binoculars are magic, bringing distant astronomical objects close or showing things invisible to the naked eye. That magic has never worn off.
—Rudolph Dorner

The Dorner Telescope Museum tells the story of the telescope in Canada, by telling the stories of Canadian telescope makers, users, and their instruments.

Many fine instruments have been produced in Canada, and innovations developed, yet the makers are frequently less well-known than they deserve to be. The museum aims to change that.

Check out the Sunshine Coast, BC Astronomers website for more information!
