|***The Bishop is moving its popular How to Use Your Telescope workshop to Sunday, March 21. (It was previously scheduled for Saturday, March 20.)***|
If you’ve been looking at your new telescope — or even the one that’s a little dusty — and wondering “How do I use this thing?” join us for a hands-on workshop at The Bishop!
Our experts will help you get comfortable setting up and using your telescope so you get the most out of it and avoid many pitfalls that can lead to frustration. Weather permitting, you’ll see the moon and stars with your own telescope by evening’s end. Then, when you head home, you’ll be well equipped to enjoy the rich hobby of astronomy.
This is a BYOT program — Bring Your Own Telescope!
