Lake Afton Public Observatory and Kansas Astronomical Observers (KAO) are hosting "Bring Your Own Telescope" programs to help people who own telescopes learn how to use them.
The free programs will be held at the following times:
Bring your telescope to the observing pad behind north of the observatory building, where KAO members will help you. They will also have a number of their own telescopes available to look through.
If you don't have a telescope but are considering buying one, you might also benefit from attending one or more of the sessions.
Lake Afton Public Observatory is operated by the Fairmount Center for Science and Mathematics Education, a part of the Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Science at Wichita State University.
