How to Set Up and Use Your New Telescope
Do you have a new telescope? Do you have a telescope sitting around that you’ve never quite learned how to use? Come to this free astronomy class on how to use your new (or unused) telescope. You will get expert help on how to set up and operate it so you too can enjoy the wonders of the night sky. You can bring any type of telescope. Members of the Atlanta Astronomy Club will help you to do more with your telescope in just one hour or so of instruction than you could do on your own in several months. Participants will also be given a list of night objects to see and how to find them. The winter sky offers some of the best objects for a telescope observing session!
