Physics Department faculty members Aşkın Kocabaş and Fethi Mübin Ramazanoğlu have a new hobby: amateur astronomy. They have been observing the skies since last spring, sometimes with a company of other interested Koç people. They have been using the 90mm aperture telescope of the department and the 8 inch telescope kindly lent by Prof. Çağatay Başdoğan of Mechanical Engineering. These observations are also a part of the “SCIE104: Exploring the Universe” course currently offered by the department. Below are some photographs of the moon at 50x and 150x magnification, taken on the evening of October 27. The most amateurish technique has been used: holding a smart phone close to the eyepiece.
