SBAU Telescope Workshop

SBAU Telescope Workshop "Want to learn how to make your own telescope or learn more about astrophotography? Well, the SBAU has a Telescope Workshop! At the Workshop, we cover construction techniques for mirrors and telescopes, but also optics, cameras, and image processing software discussions. We encourage novice astronomers to come, ask questions, and even build, while advanced members are re-invited to attend if they want to discuss telescope issues not covered at the monthly meetings or just to help out. Check out http://sbautw.blogspot.com for a sample of past weekly Tuesday night sessions at the Broder Building at the Museum of Natural History."
