All Astronomy 153 and 154 students are required to complete one evening of Rooftop Telescope Labs (T-Labs), which count for 20% of the lab grade.

T-Labs will begin the week of September 4, 2017. Signups for T-Labs are online. See the Telescope Labs section for more details.

Make sure to sign up early and often! Knoxville weather forces rooftop astronomy cancellations approximately 50% of the time! Signing up early and many times over the semester is the key to completing T-Labs!

The last week to complete T-Labs is the week of October 3, 2017. Please complete your T-Labs as soon as possible.


See the class links on the left for the complete lab schedule. See the exercises link on the left for the lab exercises.
