How to Buy a Telescope and What to look for in the Winter Sky

The gift giving season is coming up, as are beautiful clear skies. If you are considering a telescope for someone else, or even yourself, watch this video to get top tips from our own Dr. Billy Teets.

Open House Days & Telescope Nights

Tickets are available one month before each event. Please note that these events sell out quickly, so plan ahead to avoid disappointment. There are no Open House or Telescope Night dates in the months of December, January or February, because Dyer Observatory is closed. Visit our Open House Days and Telescope Nights pages for tickets and more information.
