     or

IN-PERSON SEMINAR:
Saturday, November 7, 2020 • 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm in the Auditorium

Buying a telescope is like buying a car: the best choice depends on your experience level and what you want to do with it. Come and learn the ins and outs of telescopes, with specific recommendations by our Planetarium Astronomer.

Workshop participants will be able to order their own telescopes as part of a bulk delivery (timed to arrive before the holiday season), to save on shipping, duty, and other charges.

The workshop features basics of telescope operation, what you can expect to see, and what features of a telescope are important. We’ll bust some myths about telescopes as well, to ensure you don’t wind up with a telescope that doesn’t work for you.

Tickets for Virtual Seminar via Zoom Webinar or In-Person Seminar are available now!
