  • Contact any board member, for information about EAS's telescope lending program for members.
  • TELESCOPE LENDING PROGRAM Eugene Astronomical Society owns a fine collection of telescopes. Two small refractors are in the collection. One is a computerized Meade on an Alt/Az mount. The other is on an equatorial mount. Both afford a beginner a good opportunity to experience scopes in this price range. Also by Meade is a 4.5" Newtonian, equatorial mount with a tripod. This is the smallest "mirror" in the EAS collection and represents another type of "first scope" many people purchase. I would encourage "beginner" members to check out any of these scopes to "try before you buy". In our Dobsonian collection, the club owns four scopes with 10" and 12" mirrors. All scopes are loaned to members only and come with the expectation that the borrower will assume responsibility for the scope and bring it to club functions.
