PAS hosts Free Telescope Workshops

Currently we only hold them Sept to May
when PVCC is open and we can grab a room to hold the workshops in. Our other location has asked us not to do any more indoor events, for which we had a monthly Free Telescope Workshop at.

I have put together a list of the workshop dates for Fall 2019
and Spring 2020 below. Once I have them posted to the PAS online Calendar, that's when RSVP will be availble to attend. But for now, here is the list of dates.

Sept 12, 2019 7pm to 9:30pm

Oct 17, 2019 7pm to 9:30pm

Nov 14, 2019 7pm to 9:30pm

Dec 12, 2019 7pm to 9:30pm

Jan 30, 2020 7pm to 9:30pm

Feb 13, 2020 7pm to 9:30pm

Mar 12, 2020 7pm to 9:30pm

Apr 9, 2020 7pm to 9:30pm

Those are the scheduled dates for the Free Telescope Workshops with PAS. Hope you can find the time to attend one of these dates. They are on Thursday evenings through the school year, once a month.

If you need help sooner than one of these dates, or you wish to have help at your home, Download the Booking Doc, fill it out for "Personal Telescope Instruction" and send it to Terri at Make sure your address is listed and I will find a telescope teacher willing to drive to your location to assist you with your telescope. There is a fee for this service (listed in the booking doc). The Booking Doc has the info you need.
Please note that most instruction is best if not rushed and therefore, a 2 hour minimum time frame is what I suggest you plan for. Then, the telescope instructor will contact you to set up date and time to meet at your home and help you with your telescope. Payment is expected at the completion of the event and in cash.

Have a most spectacular day!
And get out and enjoy your telescope!
Terri, Event Manager

I will add the links to the above dates once I have put these events on the PAS Calendar.
