All about telescopes
Want to buy a telescope for yourself or your kids but not sure what to buy? What’s the difference between a reflector and a refractor? What does 625x mean, and is it good? And of course, how much might all this cost?
Learn about different types of telescopes and what you can see with them Tuesday, Oct. 19, 5:30-6:30 p.m., Morristown Centennial Library, 7 Richmond St.
Presenter Neil Perlin is an Elmore-based amateur astronomer and telescope builder. He is a member of the Lamoille County Star Gazers, a group of local amateur astronomers who are renovating the Grout Observatory at Peoples Academy and who think the night sky is cool.
