We highly recommend that you look through each telescope at least 2 times during the evening, as the telescope operators will be moving to new objects as new objects become available and the previous objects disappear from view.

PAS members are setting up 10-14 telescopes for your viewing pleasure. Please help us keep these events Admission FREE by following these rules.

Please, NO White light in the observing area. If your phone rings, take the call away from the observing deck so that your white light will not affect other attendees' night vision.
