NOTE: This program was originally scheduled for January 20th, but was postponed to February 10th due to weather.

Did you receive a telescope for Christmas or for your Birthday? Did you purchase a telescope for your family to help explore the night sky? Are you thinking of making a purchase in the near future, but don’t know where to start?

The Prairie Astronomy Club would like to help!

Members of the club will give you real-world, hands-on assistance and advice using a variety of equipment and accessories. If you have a telescope you would like to specifically use, you are encouraged to bring it with you.

The session starts at 5:15pm on February 10th at Branched Oak Observatory.
