Stellarium card to BVG

Ed is a member of the RASC Toronto Centre. He's the owner of the Budget Astronomer web site (which I stumbled into a long time ago). He's a techno geek and into binary stars (I'm hoping I can find a way to use his software to measure double stars). And he is also a teacher at the co-educational Bayview Glen School.

Ed contacted me last week about Stellarium. As he is about to embark on a hands-on astronomy unit for his 80 grade 9 students, he was looking for tutorial information. A quick reference sheet, basic features, soft-copy preferred. Didn't make sense to reinvent the wheel.

I tidied up the document I had recently produced and licenced a PDF edition to the school. I hope it will help everyone out.
