Milwaukee Astronomical Society Members Page

The MAS page is geared toward the information most of interest to the membership. But visitors are welcome here as well!

MAS Meetings
Next Membership Meeting, October 19th at 8:00PM . The Board meets at 7:00PM. As all physical meetings are on hold, this one will be via teleconferencing using Zoom. Invitations will go out to the membership via email.
First Wednesday Meeting
We will be doing Zoom meetings until we can safely congregate at the observatory.
Pixinsight Forum
No Pixinsight meetings until further notice.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, there are no in person meetings, but our Saturday Member's Night have resumed under precautions including mask use and strict social distancing.

Ottawa Lake Permission
Our thanks to Jason Doyle who secured a letter of permission for members of our club to use the relatively dark area of Ottawa Lake State Recreation Area of the Southern Unit - Kettle Moraine State Forest after 11:00PM when otherwise you cannot. It is a good idea to print out the letter and have it with you. And keep in mind that you still need to purchase a day pass or an annual state park sticker.

Zit Observatory
Having set up the E-Scope last year, we have reroofed and re-sided the observatory. But we also raised the interior for more clearance and replaced the door with a taller one.

Current Universal Time

A New Parking Lot Sign! We purchased a new MAS sign for the parking lot to replace the old one that was falling apart. It sure looks great!
