The only requirement is an interest in astronomy. We welcome all skill levels with or without telescope equipment. Annual membership for individuals or family is $20.
We recommend you attend several of our star parties, observing sessions and outreach events first. This allows you to sample various types of telescopes and see the setup processes for each. Having this knowledge helps make your purchasing decision.
This is a very complicated question but the simple answer is buy one that you will use. Ease of setup and ease of use are important in your first purchase. Once addicted you can upgrade!
Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month at the Central-Clemson Library unless noted otherwise on the home page. Directions can be found under Resources on the main menu or by clicking HERE.
