If you have an unused telescope in your closet, or would like to get started in the hobby, this night is for you! We’ll feature presentations on the rewards of the hobby, what the different types of telescopes are, how they work, how to buy one, how much to spend, what to look at, you name it. Everything you need to know to get started, or to up your game. 

The public is warmly invited; there are never any dues or fees, and presentations are geared toward the general public. See you there!

We meet at 8:00 on the second Friday of the month at the Lanesville Community Center. See our website, or facebook page for more info.
