Lincoln Hills Astronomy Group

               
Telescope Interest Group

Ranny and Ron
 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 usually meet on the fourth Thursday of the month
in the OC Multi-media room 6:45 PM, but be sure
to check the schedule below for any changes or additions.
If we have a star party scheduled and it is cancelled for
weather, we will still try to have a meeting on the regular
night in the Multi-media room.

Our Next Meeting
Thursday, November 8th - Star Party at the Sports Pavilion.
Sunset is at 5:00 PM.
 Come on out to the Sports Pavilion afterwards and explore the Cosmos with us and our telescopes.
