Star Naming Guide: Christmas Stars

Using Telescopes and Binoculars in the Winter

Sometimes the temptation of a clear night winter sky is too much, and you decide to brave the elements to view the winter and Christmas stars. Are you using a pair of binoculars or a telescope to look at the stars? There’s one trick you should know to make the time you spend outside dedicated to stargazing rather than trying to clean or de-fog your optics.

When moving a telescope or binoculars from indoors to outdoors, try putting the equipment outside about two hours before using them. By letting your equipment acclimate to the cold first, you eliminate the chance for any fogging that might occur as a result of the quick temperature change. In the end, you won’t waste any valuable stargazing time trying to wipe off the lenses in the nighttime cold
