FREE Telescope Workshop at Bookmans
PLEASE send an RSVP to [masked] with the model of your telescope so that we have an instructor available who is familiar with your equipment. RSVP is required to attend as seating at this location is very limited. The Phoenix Astronomical Society will be at Bookmans on Sunday afternoon to answer your questions about telescopes, astronomy, and the night sky. If you don't have a telescope and would like advice on what type of telescope would be best for you, please also let us know in the RSVP. We don't sell telescopes so come and get your questions answered with no pressure. Hopefully we can help you pick a size and type of telescope that will bring you years of enjoyment. This event is indoors. However, if it is raining, the event will be canceled. Bring your telescope, accessories, and questions. PAS provides answers, one on one instruction, and handouts helping you learn about your telescope and the night sky. After you attend the class, feel free to visit the PAS Website Calendar ( and choose a public star party to attend. This is a laid back, informal instruction, usually one on one, designed to give you advice on how to use your telescope by daylight. We can give advise on eyepieces and let you know some objects your telescope will be able to see. We can provide informational handouts (help yourself to the whole table of handouts), and some star charts to get you started. What if you don't have a telescope yet? Come discuss scopes, their uses, the forte's, their weaknesses, the sizes, the goals you may have with your future scope... and we will help you decide which one to buy based on the discussion. Then before you buy, attend several star parties, and ask questions, view through others scopes, learn what you need to know to make a good choice in your first telescope purchase. After this event, sign up to attend a nearby public star party or the next Telescope Workshop at PVCC, and learn to use your scope by night. The difference is literally night and day. Everyone attending needs to RSVP No public RSVP's may cancel this event.
