For Parents: A packet listing all activities, materials and supplies needed is provided. Please print out and gather all materials together needed for all the activities BEFORE the camp begins. The price of the telescope kit is 100% included in the price of this course, and there are no other fees or costs to you. The telescope kit includes all the parts needed for assembling a fully functional telescope including a high performance glass crown & flint objective lens, tube, focuser, eyepieces and a Barlow lens. Beyond hand holding the telescope for viewing celestial objects, the tube is threaded for any standard camera tripod for mounting it that you will need to have or obtain. Upon enrollment, a telescope kit will be mailed to your home, so a physical address is needed. You can share this information safely using Google forms, and this personal information will only be used for mailing the telescope kit to your home. It will be promptly deleted once it is used for that purpose.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Any book on astronomy, Astronomy and Sky & Telescope magazines.
