In support of the Springfield Telescope Makers core mission of encouraging and supporting Amateur Telescope Making, we offer Mirror Classes at Stellafane in Springfield, Vermont, USA. Classes are free, but students must provide or buy the necessary material. Space is limited, classes fill up quickly, and you must sign up for class.
