2) Attending to find out what scope to purchase - RSVP with number in your party.

RSVP is required by NOON on the day of this event if you are attending to find out how to enjoy your telescope. Why? Because I need time to find a telescopes teacher who can assist you with the model of YOUR telescope.
If you are attending to find out which telescope to purchase, drop me an RSVP and then come to the event.

there is a change in plans for this event)

Bring: Your scope, accessories, and Questions and something to take notes on and with.

We also help you find your FIRST SCOPE, should you have no clue what to purchase.

Then, after you attend the class, feel free to visit the PAS

We call it the Bookman's Telescope Workshop because PAS Is hosting this event at Bookman's Entertainment Exchange at 19th Ave and Northern, N.W. Corner, in the Musical Instrument area of the store.

This is an indoor event. Thus, only extreme weather will cancel the event, or if we do not have enough Telescope Teachers for the number of telescopes attending the event.

This is a laid back, informal instruction, usually 1 on 1, designed to give you advice on how to use your telescope by daylight. We can check your collimation, if needed, we can advise on eyepieces, we can let you know
some objects your scope will be able to see, we can provide informational handouts (help yourself to the whole table of handouts), and some star charts to get you started.

Bring with you: Your telescope, eyepieces, accessories, books, charts, anything you have for your scope that you might want to discuss its use with the PAS Telescope Teachers.

What if you don't have a telescope yet?
Come discuss scopes, their uses, the forte's, their weaknesses, the sizes, the goals you may have with your future scope... and we will help you decide which one to buy based on the discussion.
Then before you buy, attend several star parties, and ask questions, view through others scopes, learn what you need to know to make a good choice in your first telescope purchase.

After this event, sign up to attend a near by public star party or the next Telescope Workshop at PVCC, and learn to use your scope by night. The difference is literally Night and Day.

Everyone attending needs to RSVP
. No public RSVP's could cancel this event.
