Good news for Charlottetown star gazers. I delivered a six-inch Dobsonian telescope to the Robertson Library at UPEI this morning.
They now have all the components (easy-carry telescope bag, books, lens pen, etc.) necessary to start their library telescope loaner program.
I am hoping we will see the announcement of the program in the next week or two. The telescope will be available for students and the public at large. Contact the library at (902) 566-0583 for more information.
This makes another option for budding astronomers in our area. With the Charlottetown Public library having two telescopes, and the libraries in Stratford and Cornwall each having one this makes four available locally. In addition , the Montague Rotary Library also has a telescope available for public use.
Check back for another announcement shortly about another telescope loaner option.
