Club Telescope/Equipment Check-Out (Borrowing) Terms and Conditions


The normal term of check-out/borrowing is three months, with renewing monthly terms as long as no other request for the equipment has been made. The club member entrusted with check-out (borrower) will keep the club Quartermaster informed of any issues with the equipment. After the expiration of the check-out term, the scope should be returned at the next club meeting, CRO visit, or by special arrangement with the club Quartermaster. Each borrower remains responsible for the scope until returned to the Quartermaster or other (willing) club board member. The Quartermaster must be informed of the circumstance and date of the return, and the name of the club representative it was left with.
