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
We have been invited by Richard Sandler to come up and observe at Blue Canyon on May 17th. Sunset is at about 8:15 PM so be sure to arrive no later than that. Please be very cautious about using headlights on the tarmac after sunset. For a map - click on the link in the calendar below.
