   "The Universe for Everyone"

Welcome to The Star Guide's "The Universe for Everyone."

"I am Starman and can take you on a tour of the Universe through space and time with a professional grade telescope from the Meade Instruments Corporation.  The telescopes I use are my own personal equipment.  You will see spectacular and breath-taking images of the planets, the Earth's moon, star clusters and deep space objects.  Or maybe you would like to look at our day star the Sun to observe its Sun Spots, Solar Flares,  Prominence, and Coronal Mass Ejection through a Meade Coronado Solar telescope.  What ever your interest is, I will arrange a program for you.  All my programs and events are free.

   I may be using a special video camera attached to one of my  telescopes to see all objects in live living color on a Television screen.  This amazing video camera was created by Rock Mallin who owns ProCom Electronics in Canada.  You can view several of their video cameras at, .org or .net   You no longer need to squint through an eyepiece to see deep space objects which appear black, gray and white.  This special video camera allows amateur and professional astronomers to research all objects while sitting in a chair in an observatory.  But as usual, we do like to start young amateurs to use eyepieces when they begin observing objects and then move up to larger telescopes when they can afford one.  I will have one of my telescopes with an eyepiece attached for people attending the events to observe the deep space objects, stars, etc.  They will be able to see why a video camera attached to a telescope is much easier to observe all objects in space by sitting in a chair and showing what they are observing on a laptop, computer monitor or UHD LED 4KTV

I also have students demonstrate the Electromagnetic Force using science equipment.  Showing how fluoresent lights will light up with two students holding a light with out it being connected to an electrical outlet.

In June 2013, I was trained in "Global Climate Change" by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland to give training and presentations to K-12th grade students, colleges, universities, museums, the public, profit and non-profit corporations.  I also host star gazing and solar gazing events.  All my programs and events are provided at no cost.  I am constantly updating and adding programs and classes to my website.  Just send me an email to arrange an observing date, class or program."
