Learn to Use the Telescope
The Maryland Space Grant Observatory is available for individual use by trained members of affiliated institutions. We run a training session every few months to get acquainted with the telescope and its operation. No prior experience is required.
The training sessions cover:
- Observatory Access
- Operating the 20-inch Morris W. Offit Telescope
- Safety and Roof Rules
Training sessions last approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Spots can be reserved via email on a first come first served basis. Contact Erini Lambrides for more information about training and access or to reserve a spot in the next training session.
