Here is a really cool idea from Northeast Ohio's Geauga Park District. If you are in the neighborhood and you have an old telescope that needs tweaking (and virtually all telescopes will eventually get out of alignment) stop by and have it adjusted.
DROP-IN TELESCOPE CLINIC
Observatory Park astro-nats can assist your home sky-watching as well
Do you have a telescope that's collecting dust in your attic?
Register for this opportunity to bring it in for a tune-up!
What: Bring In Your Telescope!
When: Saturday, January 19 – 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: Observatory Park, 10610 Clay Street, Montville Township
Whether you've got a 400-year-old antique or a spiffy new model you're unsure how to use, allow Observatory Park's astro-nats to help you clean, configure and figure out your telescope so you can get back to home sky-watching. (Observatory Park is a Silver Tier International Dark Sky Park, as well, so you may also find yourself using that 'scope on one of its telescope pads, which allow for electrical hook-up.)
Registration is required for this all-ages program, which is wheelchair/stroller accessible, at http://geaugaparkdistrict.org or 440-286-9516. Call that number, too, with questions.
