Start Party Etiquette 

  • Don't touch any equipment unless the telescope owner gives you permission
  • Never touch a telescope lens. 
  • Don't use white lights.  Red light is preferred to protect night vision. Flashlights are not needed, but if you bring one, please use red film over the lens.
  • Do not drive into Crestview Park with your headlights on.  This means parking on the main street and walking in.
  • Star Parties are quiet events.  Please be respectful of other attendees and the homes bordering the park.
  • Children are very welcome - please keep an eye on them.
  • Never bring food, drink or any spray product near a telescope, even if it just water.  All can damage expensive optics.
