In anticipation of holiday purchases, the
Tuesday, Nov. 17, meeting of the Birmingham Astronomical Society will
offer tips on how to select and buy a telescope. The public is invited
to the meeting, held at 7 p.m. in the Christenberry Planetarium in
Samford University’s Propst Hall.
Because many people like to buy telescopes for
Christmas presents, the Society devotes its November meeting each year
to the topic, says BAS member and planetarium director George Atchley.
BAS members will bring their telescopes to the
meeting in order to answer questions and demonstrate the various types
that are available.
For information, contact Atchley at (205) 726-4139.
