Have an old telescope gathering dust in your garage? Have a new telescope that’s challenging to set up and align? Thinking about buying a telescope and want to learn about different types?
Spend a long weekend under the awesome desert sky, working with mentors to sharpen your telescope skills.
Sky’s the Limit Observatory and Nature Center, 9697 Utah Trail, offers a Telescope Clinic on Saturday, May 25. The long Memorial Day weekend provides additional opportunities to practice on Friday and Sunday nights.
The workshop is for people who have a new – or old – telescope they would like to use but do not know how to set it up or operate it.
Mentors will be on hand from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm on Saturday to answer questions and assist with assembly, alignment, and operation. Help will be available on Friday night for those who have yet to take their equipment out of the box.
Newly-mentored aspiring astronomers can share their knowledge with guests at a free public Star Party from 8:45 to 10:45 on Saturday, and garner additional observing time on Sunday.
Workshop fee of $20 per person includes pizza on Saturday between the end of the Clinic and start of the Star Party. Registration is limited, so sign up early. Minimum age is 12 years.
