Intro to Observing Class

  • Stub Stewart State Park (map)

Pre-registration for this event is required. Are you new to observing? Have you always wanted to take a telescope out but didn't know where to start? Our second Intro to Observing class of the 2019 season is coming up in August! Come learn about how telescopes work, how to find constellations in the sky, and how to point a telescope for a closer look at deep-sky objects. 8 slots are available. Please email to reserve your spot and for further details.

This class is ideal for members who have never or rarely used a telescope and would like to become more comfortable observing the night sky. You do not need to have a telescope to attend and participate. We will be providing and observing with Dobsonians, so if you have a Dobsonian with a Telrad or dot finder, you are welcome to bring it (please check with us first!). Everyone will be able to work with a telescope throughout the evening. Responses exceeding the 8 available slots will be placed on a waiting list.
