What I saw at the most recent WB course, was that the presenter had
a) star charts and b) several #10 cans, painted black - with a number
on the constallations punched into the cans with small nails (this
allows some presentation even in worst weather)
Also available for better weather was some binoculars (yes they work)
and 2 assorted telescopes - (use your resources)
A couple handouts were also presented from WEB sites that have
star study and atronomy info - including radio telescopes etc.
The formal presentation was only aobut 20 minutes with the rest
of the time doing hands on - with the available weather and
I have also seen the cans used in a very dark room to project
the constallations on the celling or a white sheet.
