| The Telescope Interest Group is a
sub-group of the Lincoln Hills Astronomy Group.
We concentrate on aspects of using and owning a personal
telescope - from researching your purchase, through learning
how to operate your new eye on the Universe. In addition
to lectures focusing on telescopes and astronomy in general,
we host frequent star parties for observing the night sky and
other special celestial events.
We meet on the fourth Thursday of the month.
