Learn about Telescopes at Next Astronomical Society Meeting

Toying with the idea of purchasing a telescope? The Door Peninsula Astronomical Society is made up of people who know a lot about telescopes, and they will share their experiences at the May 6th Door Peninsula Astronomical Society program, “Telescopes: Reflector-Refractor-Dobsonian-Binoculars and More!”

Local amateur astronomers will discuss the pros and cons and answer audience questions about various types of optical equipment. After the 7 pm presentation and refreshments, if the skies are clear, participants will get a chance to try out telescopes and binoculars in the Star Garden. This free program takes place in the Stonecipher Astronomy Center at Crossroads at Big Creek and the public is encouraged to attend; use the Utah Street entrance to Crossroads.

The Collins Learning Center will be closed to the public this weekend of May 2 – 4. Crossroads at Big Creek is a donor-supported preserve welcoming learners of all ages to experience-based programs in science, history and the environment. The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay, is open daily 2 – 4:30 pm and during scheduled activities.
