CHESTER, Vt. – If you are interested in pursuing astronomy as a hobby or part of you or your children’s ongoing education, you are faced with a lot of complicated decisions before you begin. If you would like some guidance in selecting the equipment best suited for your interests and budget, the Southern Vermont Astronomy Group is hosting a discussion at its November meeting which may be of help to you.

Patrick Porch and Rick Bates, long-time members of SoVerA, will talk about the various types of observing equipment available to amateur astronomers. There will be discussion of the pros and cons of the various types of equipment, and a variety of types of telescope on display to look at. If the skies permit, there will be some informal observing after the presentation.

Please join us Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019 at 7 p.m. at the Whiting Library in Chester, Vt. SoVerA meetings are free and open to the public.
