TUESDAY POPUP Observatory Training
Rene Gedaly, Observatory Trainer
Wherever you are, Houston, Katy, Columbus...TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT TO GET OUTSIDE
** Clear weather is forecast Tuesday night so PopUp Observatory Training is a GO! ** Open to all qualified members ** Start time: 4 pm CDT **
To sign up for observatory training
Check your class prerequisites (links below). Basically, you’ve been a dues paying member for at least 6 months, have taken the 2019 online orientation, and have a working knowledge of equatorial mounts.
Email your RSVP to Observatory Director Chris Ober at [email protected]. Chris will check your prerequisites and add you to the class. It’s first come, first serve to the first six students.
Brown bag your dinner. We start at 4 pm and will break for dinner in the picnic area.
Hope you’re as excited as your trainers are. Hopefully you can make it, too, but the skies won’t go to waste in any case.
All prerequisites are on the website, but in particular, make sure you've taken this year's Dark Site Orientation or you’ll miss out.
