   * **Training sessions for the optical telescopes: ** The optical telescopes can be used by anyone with a valid telescope diploma. First-year students can obtain such a diploma as part of the '​observational astronomy'​ course, and this diploma is valid for one year. To update the diploma, students need to refresh their diploma by attending one of the official telescope training sessions, held four times a year. Please note that these telescope training sessions are also suitable for department members who want to brush up on their telescope skills. During the session (1:30 - 2:00h) we review how to safely operate the domes and both telescopes, using the manual control and the computer. We setup the 20cm telescope for solar observations,​ and point the 35cm to the Erasmus building. We also comment on a few interesting facts you can use when guiding people to the telescopes. In addition, and only if there is interest, we show how to use the CCD (extra 01:30h).   * **Training sessions for the optical telescopes: ** The optical telescopes can be used by anyone with a valid telescope diploma.
