So You Want to Buy a Telescope?
By Coca-Cola Space Science Center

Are you thinking about buying a telescope for yourself or someone else this holiday season? Or, do you have a telescope that has been in the closet since last year because no one knows how to use it? Join us at CCSSC on November 12 at 6 p.m. for “So You Want to Buy a Telescope.” Clinic presented by Dr. Shawn Cruzen and Sarah Nupen.

This telescope clinic will help you answer the following:

* What’s the difference between a refractor and a reflector? Which is better for me?

* How big of a telescope do I need?

* What magnification is best?

* Which telescope is best for younger astronomers?

* How do I know where to find objects in the night sky?

Dr. Shawn Cruzen and Sarah Nupen will guide you through the many options of buying a telescope. We will answer all of the above questions and more. Register for “So You Want to Buy a Telescope” today! Seating is limited and physical distancing will be observed.
