Telescope Viewing

Local astronomy clubs are often well-versed in assisting with observing campaigns, and many members may have—and be willing to share—telescopes.

Also, the Univeristy of Denver Chamberlin Observatory is a great spot to use their state-of-the-art telescope. Many scientists and astrologists (and general night sky enthusiasts) participate outside on the lawn, and they welcome guests to join them in viewing the night sky!
