Do you have a telescope in your closet and are not sure what to do with it? Perhaps it is still in the box? Your local astronomy club, the North Houston Astronomy Club, is having a telescope workshop with you in mind. It will be Aug. 25, from 6:30-9 p.m. at Lone Star College-Kingwood in Classroom Building A.
Whether you are thinking about buying a telescope, need to assemble one you already have, need to learn how to operate your telescope, or are wondering what objects are available for you to see, this is a workshop for you. No reservations are required and there is no cost; just arrive at 6:30 p.m. and bring your telescope (if you have one) with you. If it has a user manual, please bring it as well. See you there.

Before you go …

… we’ve got a small favor to ask. More people are reading The Tribune than ever. Advertising revenues across the media  spectrum are falling fast. And unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Tribune's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. Support the only locally owned, locally produced news product in the Lake Houston area.  And thank you!
