2017 training dates for the Library's Dobsonian telescope

Post by thallig » February 18th, 2017, 10:54 pm

It's an Orion Skyquest XT6, which was generously donated to the East Baton Rouge Parish Library from our own Baton Rouge Astronomical Society.

It is available for checkout with a valid East Baton Rouge Parish Library card from the Main Library on Goodwood Boulevard; when returning it, it must be returned to the Main Library.

Here is a link to the schedule (these are typically thirty minute to one hour sessions)—
