Our telescope librarian, Al Scott, has a number of telescopes available for loan to Ottawa RASC members only.

NEW POLICY: For only $50 members can get a telescope for unlimited loan (until requested by another member)! If requested before the end of 5 months, a pro-rated refund will be applied.

Are you thinking of buying a telescope? Why not try one first? Telescopes can be borrowed for $10/mo with $10 deposit.
Bino-viewer eyepiece adapter now available with matched 20 mm eyepieces for $10/mo!
Binoculars and 3" SCT (with camera adapter) can be borrowed for $5/mo.
