Lake Afton Public Observatory is holding three “Bring Your Own Telescope” programs designed to help people who own a telescope, or want to own one, better learn how to use the equipment.

The programs, which are free to the public, will be held on the observing pad north of the observatory building. Members of the Kansas Astronomical Observers will be there assisting participants.

The programs will be held at 9 p.m. on June 17, July 15 and August 19.

The Lake Afton Public Observatory is operated by the Fairmount Center for Science and Mathematics Education, a part of the Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Science at Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas.
