June: Solar Observing Party


Instead of our regular meeting, we’re planning to have a solar observing party at Hyde Observatory starting at 6pm. If it’s cloudy, we’ll have a live feed on-screen from a solar observatory.

June 28th at 6:00pm at Hyde Observatory. Meetings are open to the public.


How to Buy a Telescope

Due to covid, we’ve decided to move our annual How to Buy a Telescope presentation to Youtube.

If you’re considering buying a telescope for yourself or as a gift for a family member, the Prairie Astronomy Club can help! In this video an experienced amateur astronomer talks about how to select a telescope and what to look for when making your purchasing decision.
Also we have a Telescope Buyer’s Guide on our website:
