Sage Advice for Purchasing a Telescope
by Bobby Thompson
Telescopes are a fun way to learn the stars, planets and constellations. If you are thinking of buying a telescope this Christmas, you can take advantage of the October meeting of the Barnard Astronomical Society (BAS) to try a variety of telescopes before you buy. Get answers to your questions, advice on what will suit your needs and learn from the experts how to set up your equipment.
BAS Programs and Meetings are free and open to anyone who has an interest in the sky! All are welcome!
