Telescope Check-Out Program



NASA Nebraska Space Grant is pleased to introduce our Telescope Check-Out Program. This program makes available easy-to-use, high quality, optical instruments for educational use. The lending program is offered free of charge to instructors of Nebraska-based K-12 schools, colleges and universities, youth organizations, and amateur astronomy groups.

Check-out periods range from 1 to 7 days, and are on a first-come-first-serve basis. Prior to check-out, the "lendee" will be given a 30 minute lesson on using the equipment, as well as given "quick start" cards to use in the field. If the instructor wishes further assistance, a Space Grant staff member may be able to provide on-site group instruction at no charge (schedule permitting). 

For more information or to reserve a check-out date, please contact the Nebraska Space Grant at: 402.554.3772 or
