Observatory Building Training Apr 15, 2023

Observatory building training will be conducted Saturday, April 15 for the first six members who meet all class requirements. Watch for a reply email from Chris Ober to see if you made the cut. Please do not request a spot in class if you cannot meet the time and weather commitments listed in my email. 

Prior to observatory training, users are required to have:

  • Knowledge of basic telescope functionality and procedures.
  • Working understanding of equatorial-mounted astronomical telescopes.
  • Know how to read star charts and locate/identify constellations in the night sky.
  • It is also strongly recommended, though not required, that users be familiar with using TheSkyX software.

All requirements are listed on the Observatory page. Good luck!
