Let’s Talk Telescopes— This class is for you if you’ve ever thought about owning a telescope, if you have a telescope that is gathering dust instead of star light or if you’re just plain curious about these magnificent instruments. The three major types of telescopes and three mounts in use today for amateur telescopes will be reviewed. A brief description of the evolution of the telescope will be presented by considering six historic telescopes, from Galileo’s original (1609) to the Hubble Space Telescope (launched in 1990). Following the presentation, a mini-workshop will be held. All telescope subjects will be open for discussion, including any problems you may be having with yours. You are encouraged to bring your telescope for display and/or to receive assistance in its use. Tuesday, Feb. 24, 7-8:30 p.m.  Free.
