Thinking of buying a telescope, but with so many options, which one is right?

Before you buy, join Franklin Institute Chief Astronomer Derrick Pitts for an exploration of telescopes—from the various sizes to the different magnifications. Pitts will guide you through how telescopes differ, which is right for you, and what objects in the sky are best to look at. Our goal is for you to leave with a new-found understanding of the options available so you can soon explore and appreciate the wonders of the night sky.

This workshop is $30 for members and $50 for non-members. Details here: http://bit.ly/2GfFNzd

The two-hour workshop includes a 30-minute celestial navigation orientation in the Fels Planetarium, and a complete review of all you need to know to get the right scope — at the right price — for you or your family.
