Open House at Chamberlin Observatory the DAS 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 aperture Alvan Clark-Saegmuller refractor by registering on the main floor of the observatory and paying a $1 per-person fee. General Talk on "How to buy a Telescope" An added bonus on Open House nights is that Denver Astronomical Society members set up their telescopes on the observatory grounds (Observatory Park) to share with anyone and everyone interested in taking a look at the wonders of the universe stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae, star clusters and more! (There is no charge for viewing through DAS member telescopes.) Members are happy to answer any and all 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, not to worry: bring it to the Open House and someone will help you.
