Additional Stargazing Tools

red flashlight


A star chart (or plaisphere) is available to help you locate stars, planets, and other objects in the sky.  And a red flashlight to keep your eyes adjusted to the dark.

OU Libraries has several items available for check-out that can be used for star gazing and amateur astronomy.  Available for a 3 day loan period at the main circulation desk in Bizzell Memorial Library.  Visit the main circulation desk at or call (405) 325-3341 to book this item in advance.

Using the stargazing tools

Cornerstones of Science has some helpful how-tos.  (Note, the telescope they show is not the same one available at OU Libraries but searching for objects in the sky will be the same with either telescope.)
