BAHTINOV MASK CONSTRUCTION NAEC BOLIVIA

Hello Astronomers!

A Bahtinov mask is a really useful instrument when doing astronomical observation. 

Bahtinov Mask Construction Guide – NAEC Bolivia link (Spanish): https://drive.google.com/file/d/12hNWwCZDh-lBxB9-3ApMUotDQgAbSeNn/view?usp=sharing

I truly believe that part of efficient diffusion of information is doing it using simple explanations and easy accessibility to people interested for Astronomy.

Building this item is really easy, fun and has many ways to do it!

These recent days I was experimenting with some materials and something that came in mind was to use plastic and transparent acetates for making a Bahtinov mask. Therefore, as part of NACE Bolivia developed resources, we made a simple Bahtinov Mask Guide (Spanish Language) for spending little money in order to get something useful.

I believe this is something that anyone can try and also be functional for Astronomical Observation!

Hope this information is useful for you,

 

Clear skies!
