• Participants will need to know how to set up, use and manipulate their own telescopes if they participate in BYOT
• Naturalists are only technically familiar with Elachee telescopes and are not guaranteed to have any knowledge of each individual type brought
• Program is not intended to be a ‘how to use a telescope’ course, but an astronomy program. We are providing the low light pollution setting along with a guide for what can be seen.
Only registered participants allowed during the Stars Over Elachee program. All participants are subject to CDC guidance for social distancing. Dress for the weather. Portable restrooms on site. No indoor facilities. Dog and pets prohibited on campus.
