Meet Your Telescope with Ottawa Public Library, Carp Saturday Sep 08, 2018 at 3:15pm

This program offers one-on-one assistance to participants to help them learn how to use their own telescope. It is aimed at anyone who has a telescope but is not comfortable using it and/or doesn't know what the parts are for. Participants will be expected to bring their own telescope, and learn how to assemble and use it.  The program will be held just prior to the RASC-sponsored public star parties on site, so if the weather co-operates, participants will also be able to use their own telescopes at theses stargazing events. Presented in partnership with RASC.
