I need this data to make sure we have seats for the attendees.

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. Include the number in your party, please.

We call it the Bookman's Telescope Workshop because PAS Is hosting this event at Bookman's Entertainment Exchange at 19th Ave and Northern.

This is an indoor event. Thus, only extreme weather will cancel the event, or if we do not have any Telescope Teachers RSVP'd to attend this 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 also 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 of the style telescope you are thinking about purchasing, learn what you need to know to make a good choice in your first telescope purchase.

After this telescope workshop, if you want outdoor, evening instruction, come to the Thursday Telescope Workshop at PVCC. This is the only event you can go to to get one on one outdoor, help in finding your first object, assistance. RSVP today!
