November 27: How to Buy a Telescope


We will present our annual “How to Buy a Telescope” program at the November meeting. The meeting will start at 7:30 at Hyde Observatory. The program usually starts at 8:00 pm.

Every holiday season people ponder buying telescopes as gifts, for their children, for their family or for friends. The few designs found in most department stores offer little information and clerks are rarely knowledgeable. Buying on the Internet or home shopping channels without any help doesn’t inspire confidence. What if you had a chance to have help in making that purchase?
The Prairie Astronomy Club offers this assistance this month at its regular meeting at 7:30pm at Hyde Observatory on Tuesday, November 27th with a session on “how to buy a telescope.” Experienced amateurs will provide examples of both the good and bad purchases and lots of helpful hints.
