Event Details

 

Ground control to Crested Butte Area residents! The telescope has landed!

 
 

The Crested Butte Library, in partnership with the Gunnison Valley Observatory (GVO), are pleased to offer a telescope and a bag of equipment and guides for you to borrow from the Library. All you need is a Library card and you can check out an Orion Starblast 4.5” telescope, and all you need for your own personal star party, for 7 days. The telescope will be available to checkout starting on December 8.

 
 

Come learn about the telescopes at one of our public orientation sessions, with local starman, Rob Brown, from GVO on Thursday, December 7 at 6:30 PM or Wednesday, December 20 at 6:30 PM. Training will include how to use the telescope and how to find objects in the night-sky…and we’ll be actually be using the telescope to view objects in the night sky, weather permitting.
