Public Star Party at Cedar Creek – How to Use a Telescope
March 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT
How to Use a Telescope – March 2023 Star Party Program
Receive a new telescope as a gift or new to using telescopes? In the first Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve Star Party of 2023, experienced Minnesota Astronomical Society members will walk you through the basics of telescope use and help you learn more about your telescope and how to use it. If the skies are clear, practice what you learned using your telescope. In addition, a number of telescopes will be available for night sky viewing after the program, weather dependent. NOTE: You do not need a telescope to attend.
The primary scheduled star party typically is for Friday night, with a backup date of Saturday, if the weather is better. This calendar will be updated with the latest schedule.
Directions to Cedar Creek can be found on website. Park near the Lindeman Lab Reception Hall. The telescopes will be set up adjacent to the hall near the field.
