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!
