*** Training Postponed ***
Training covers opening and closing the observatory, operating the Celestron C14 telescope, and securing the building in case of emergency. After a short dinner break, students will reconvene to demonstrate competence in these areas:
- Understanding the burden of responsibility for the facility
- Documenting "as found” and “as left” condition of the observatory
- Proper startup and shutdown of the C14 telescope
- Use of emergency building procedures
Check training prerequisites here: Observatory Training Prereqs. To sign up for class, watch for my email to go out via [email protected] and respond to Observatory Director Christopher Ober at [email protected]. The first six RSVPs will be added to the roster.
