Telescope Workshop

There are so many different telescope types available today for amateur use, but which one will work best for your interest?
This monthly meeting of the Astronomy Club of Asheville will feature a hands-on interaction workshop showcasing a variety of modern telescope styles and astrophotography setups. If you are in the market to purchase a telescope for yourself or as a gift soon, this event is for you. If you are thinking about upgrading your equipment from observing to imaging, this event is also for you. Or if you just want some tips and tricks about setting up and using a telescope from some seasoned veterans, there will be plenty of that also. A variety of different telescopes will be set up around the meeting room, each staffed by an expert to share information about that kind of telescope. They will talk about the pros and cons of the equipment in order to help you make more informed decisions when choosing astronomy and astrophotography gear.
