How To Use A Telescope

Is there a telescope gathering dust in the closet because you don’t know how to use it? Perhaps you have been using your telescope but it doesn’t seem to be working quite right and you’re asking yourself: “Is it me or the equipment?” Or maybe you’d like to buy a telescope and want to know what to consider before making the purchase.

This lecture and workshop will provide the answers.

You’ll learn all you ever wanted to know about telescopes and receive practical information that will help you get set up and observing. After the lecture, there will be an opportunity for you to receive hands-on help from the instructor and his Staff so bring your equipment with you.

Instructor Jeff Norwood is a veteran amateur astronomer, telescope mechanic, and owner of Camera Concepts & Telescope Solutions in Stony Brook.
