The class will begin with a tour of the Orrery, a scale model of our Solar System’s four inner planets.

This will be followed by a PowerPoint lecture on basic astronomy that will include a discussion of telescopes and their use. The class will last approximately two hours.

Participants will receive a packet of information including a copy of the text used during the lecture, a star chart for each month of the year, a Moon map, and a Celestron brochure entitled, “How To Buy Your First Telescope.”

Completing this course will make you eligible to become a volunteer docent who will be trained to use STL telescopes during our Star Parties.

The $15 class fee includes a chance to win a Celestron Firstscope, a small table-top scope, generously donated by the manufacturer.

Participants should bring a chair, water, and a pen or pencil to make notes. Dress for unpredictable desert weather. The class may need to be re-scheduled in the event of rain or strong winds. Anyone unable to attend on the new date will receive a refund.

Cutoff date for registering is March 22.
