Check out our telescope!
The Library has recieved a gift of an Orion StarBlast 4.5-inch Astronomical Telescope with a zoom eye piece and supportive material and an instruction manual. The telescope is easy to use and is robust. There is nothing to assemble. The telescope is of manageable size, but has a relatively large optical tube. This means that the Moon and deep sky objects will show far more detail than one could see with the common "beginners" telescopes. It also has a large field of view that allows the object to stay in the eyepiece longer. This is a quality instrument, reviewed by a number of astronomical publications and found quite worthy.
Many thanks to the New Hampshire Astronomical Society and Loudon resident Curtiss Rude for the generous gift.
Join us Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 am for
