The NVPL Telescope

Our telescope was purchased with partial funding from the USDA Forest Service. Thanks to the Western Montana Astronomical Association (WMAA), it is set up in a user-friendly style for patrons. The Orion StarBlast 4.5" Equatorial telescope includes an instruction manual, posters, planispheres and a carrying case.
Here in Montana we are fortunate to have some wonderful stargazing opportunities. Take advantage of this amazing resource and observe the night sky with your family and friends. Borrow the telescope for up to 14 days at a time.
