Please be advised that due to the bad winter storm forecast for Saturday, the scope clinic has been postponed to February 2 from 1:00-5:00pm.

Find yourself the proud owner of a shiny new telescope this holiday season and not sure how to use it? Or perhaps thinking of buying one but have some questions? You’re in luck! The Hamilton Amateur Astronomers will be hosting a Scope Clinic and Open House on Saturday, January 19, 2019. Held in the auditorium of the Hamilton Spectator Building, the doors are open to the public from 1:00–5:00pm.

A wide variety of astronomical equipment will also be on display, including telescopes, binoculars, astro-photographic equipment, charts and meteorites! Bring your own telescope to get tips and pointers on using it, or help fixing it if it is in need of repair.

Admission is free so bring your family and friends!
