We Have A Local Telescope Store
« on: October 06, 2021, 09:36:22 AM »
The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature is now an authorized telescope dealer. They are one of just two in the entire state of Florida. They carry a very nice selection of telescopes under $500 and binoculars as well. Wolf will be happy to hear that they just received a shipment of SkyWatcher 6" Dobs. If you buy there they will also teach you how to use it. They sell at the regular street prices too, no price gouging. Check it out...support the local business.

Hi Wolf. The teaching is done either by myself or Howard, the planetarium manager. Anything up to but not including any imaging techniques. Mostly basic stuff to get folks up and running.
