Frequently Asked Questions

Where would it be best to use the Library Telescope?

If you live in a light polluted area, the Moon and Planets will be visible in a library telescope.  The moon can also be viewed in the daytime.

Deep sky objects (DSOs) like galaxies, nebula, and clusters will be best viewed under a dark location.  See the Astronomy League “Urban Observing” program for suggestions of items to see under light polluted skies:
