Almost every month, on the Saturday nearest the first quarter moon, the Denver Astronomical Society hosts an Open House at the University of Denver’s historic Chamberlin Observatory. Guests can view the heavens through the observatory’s famous 20-inch telescope for $2 per person ($5 per family).
Plus, Society members set up their telescopes on the observatory grounds (Observatory Park) to share for FREE with anyone and everyone interested in taking a look at stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae, star clusters and more.
Members are happy to answer questions about their telescopes so you can start to explore which type might be right for you. If you already have a scope, but can’t quite figure out how it works, bring it to the Open House and someone will help you.
