2018 Summer Work Parties
We had a phenomenal year with our work parties and accomplished all of our goals and they are too many to list here, but you can see from our new banner the new color scheme for our observatory. See the pictures at the right showing our various members who helped out. 

We have seen great progress with the G-Scope which sits in the Z-Dome. The new AP GTO1600 is now mounted on top of the new bridge and it ready for installation of the scope.

Current Universal Time

Images from the 2018 work parties. The images in the above slideshow show our members sprucing up our observatory as we change our color scheme. Thank you to all our members who've helped!
