TVS Presents

   This panel of distinguished TVS members stands ready to help new and experienced scope wranglers make the most of their machines. Club members will offer working examples of the following four general categories of telescope: refractors, Dobsonians, reflectors, and catadioptrics. A variety of eyepieces, filters, and other accessories will also be on hand.

   TVS will provide complimentary copies of
Welcome to Amateur Astronomy: Your Passport to the Universe, a publication produced by Astronomy magazine. Speakers will explain how to collimate a scope, how to set up for observing in comfort, and how to select objects for a fun and rewarding evening of stargazing. As always, guests are welcome to attend.

Since Feburary 7, 2000 we estimate that this page has been downloaded about times.
