Telescope flyerTELESCOPE TO CHECK OUT - The library telescope program was launched in 2008 by the New Hampshire Astronomical Society. Our telescope is a manageable size but has a relatively large optical tube. This means that the Moon and deep sky objects will show far more detail than one could see with the common "beginners" telescopes. It provides a large field of view that allows the object to stay in the eyepiece longer. Comes with instructions.



"BOOKS SANDWICHED IN" - "Books Sandwiched In" is a series of presenter-led book reviews and discussions hosted by the Friends of the Samuel H. Wentworth Library.
