How to Use Your Telescope

Caryl D. Philips Space Theater

Bring your personal telescope to the Boonshoft Museum and receive assistance operating it from members of the Miami Valley Astronomical Society (MVAS). Free astronomy observing materials will be available, and visitors will also have the chance to ask questions of experienced amateur astronomers about using and/or purchasing binoculars, telescopes, and other accessories.

Admission to Evening of Astronomy programs is FREE. Live night sky viewing will be available throughout the evening, weather permitting.

*Note that MVAS members are not vendors and will not have items for sale.
