Here are the photos and articles that have appeared on the front pages of the MAS website.



Giant Magellan Telescope. We were honored to have a presentation in our Quonset by Jim Fanson, the Project Manager for the Giant Magellan Telescope. Fanson joined the MAS in October of 1973 and remained a member for over 20 years, long after he had left the Milwaukee area. He graciously allowed us to record his presentation so we could post it for all who could not attend. Jim is once again a member as he was elected an Honorary Member.


The MAS Periodic Table of Messier Objects. Here is the status of our effort to image every Messier object. We are soliciting images from all members to help us complete this chart. When complete, a large poster will be made and hung in the Quonset.

MAS Observatory in Winter. MAS member Shubhendu Sadhukha produced this image. He is in the picture as it was snapped via remote control. Our solar observatory was actually photoshopped into the picture, but everything else is real.
