Election Results
We have two new board members: Gabe Shaughnessy and Mike Wagner. All of the officers were re-elected, except Lee Keith was elected to Vice-Present. The Board voted to make Paul Borchardt a Founder Member.

We now have a brand new F-Scope, a Stellarvue SVQ100 F5.8 Astrograph to replace the C14. And a new imaging camera, a ZWO ASI1600MM Cool. The mount is an AP GTO900. It sits in the Toeller Observatory. Testing is complete and it is now in operation
