This workshop covers fundamental concepts necessary to obtain the best performance from your telescope and accessories. Topics include:
- Understanding Eyepieces
- Eye Relief Demonstration
- Resolution and Contrast
- Collimating a Newtonian or Schmidt Cass
- Using the Star Test to tune up your scope
- Getting the most from your scope
Please register by sending an email to There will be ample time to ask questions. I’m planning to set up an “artificial star” to demonstrate the star test. The Burke Museum does not have any special event scheduled on this date and this may ease the parking situation in the TJO lot.
