We are a group of people in the Mid-Hudson Valley who are interested in Astronomy and Science. We hold monthly star parties at Lake Taghkanic State Park, and monthly presentations at SUNY New Paltz (both open to the public). We also participate in local education and outreach event -- our members are available to make presentations or arrange for public observations of the night sky or the sun and to help beginners learn how to get started in astronomy. When the weather allows, we often set up telescopes on the Walkway Over the Hudson when they hold their Walkway At Night events.
If you are interested in becoming a member of MHAA you can follow these instructions (http://join.midhudsonastro.org/). Annual dues are $25, which we use to support our activities, including insurance for our star parties. Members can borrow club telescopes or from our DVD collection, and can participate in discussions on our Slack discussion channels (https://midhudsonastro.slack.com/) and our members' mailing list at http://mhaa.groups.io .
Learn how to safely view and image the sun. This presentation will guide you through the various solar scopes available on the market, important differences between the solar setups, the various types of solar filters, what they will show on the sun, and a peak at solar imaging.
