Beginners Meeting

Beginners meetings are on the second Saturday of the month starting at 5:00 pm (just preceding the regular Membership meeting). Meetings are usually held at the Weldon Spring Interpretive Center at 7295 RT-94, Saint Charles, MO 63304 Link to Map. Occasionally, meetings may be held at Broemmelsiek Park for telescope instruction and practice. All meetings are free and open to the public. Map to Broemmelsiek Park.

The October meeting will be on the 8th at 5:00 pm immediately preceding the monthly membership meeting. We will have an example of a telescope that can be made for about $100 cash outlay. It features 4.5 inch optics set that can be purchased online and a 3D printed OTA (optical tube assembly) and alt-az mount.

You may bring telescopes and other equipment you may need help with.
