Scope out your new telescope at one of our informative telescope classes.

Our refracting/reflecting scope class April 6 at 3 p.m. will teach beginner astronomers how to set up their ‘scopes, as well as some star formations to look for.

Then, at 4:30 p.m., our go-to/computerized telescope class will lend expert advice on how to align your ‘scope. Stay late and let the public view the stars through your new telescope on the observation deck, and see how much fun it can be to volunteer at the George!

Both classes are $25 for members, $30 for the public.
