OCA’s Spring “How to Use Your Telescope” Class

Posted On March 30, 2004

Our free, semi-annual "How to Use Your Telescope" class is always a lot of fun for the people who come for help and the volunteers who come to help them out.  This is the most "hands on" session in our regular Beginners Class - and everyone is welcome, whether you've been to any other class sessions or not, whatever type of telescope you have (or even if you're just thinking about getting one and want to see some in action), and whatever level of experience you have. 


The class is in front of the classroom behind the Centennial Heritage Museum (formerly the Discovery Museum).  The museum is at 3101 W. Harvard in Santa Ana.  This is about a half-block west of Fairview, on the north side of Harvard.  The intersection of Fairview and Harvard has a signal and is about midway between Edinger and Warner.  The driveway to get to the back of the museum property is through wrought iron gates at the west end of the property; follow the driveway past the orchard and gazebo area, through the turn to the right, and into the parking area.  The classroom is currently behind a temporary fence, but the gate will be open.  Please park outside the gate in the temporary fence unless instructed otherwise by the organizers at the scene.
