Shinji Nishio

Shinji first took interest in astronomy when he was in his second year of elementary school reading a book on astronomy. As telescopes were very expensive and were hardly obtained at that time, he collected magnifying glasses and cheap lens at a stationery store to make his original Galilean telescope and Keplerian telescope and observed the surface of the moon, galaxies and star clusters through self-study. During his junior high and high school days, he became a leader of the astronomical club. After he started working, he has been hosting many astronomical observation events for educational organizations, kids, and for citizens.
The terrace is equipped with telescopes such as small telescopes, reflecting telescope with 40cm large automatic tracking function and other telescopes for photography. The equipment is attached to the same rack with a computerized automatic introduction and tracking function device. During the event, participants can enjoy the stories and explanations about the Solar System (moon, planets, comets, and fixed stars), extragalactic planets, constellations and myths. Photography sessions are also held where the guest’s digital cameras and SD cards used for cell phones can be used.
