PMO Volunteers Annual Meeting (2017)

The annual orientation meeting for PMO volunteers has been scheduled for Saturday May 13 at 4 p.m. at PMO. [Time revised to allow for Dr. Fisher to call-in from the UO at 5 p.m.] Potential new volunteers are welcome, but should call or email the PMO site manager first for additional information and to register. [Contact: Alton Luken, Operations Manager, Pine Mountain Observatory, ph. 541-382-8331, email aluken@uoregon.edu] New volunteers receive sky familiarization and telescope training, starting with PMO’s 8 and 10-inch portable scopes. Training sessions will be scheduled later in May and June as needed. Although you can also offer to volunteer later in the season, the earlier the better!

The first public tour weekend at PMO is Memorial Day Weekend, Friday-Saturday May 26-27, 2017. (Sorry, no Sunday/Monday tours.)

  1. Hi,

    I am interested in attending the volunteer training. Not sure what information you need, but I live in Bend and have a general familiarity with telescopes.

    1. Larry – Thanks for your interest. That should be enough info for now. At the volunteer’s meeting, you can tell us more about your telescope experience and when you may be available during the summer season. – Eric H.
