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

MAS Domes and Gate Paint and a Gate! We painted the A and Z Domes and now have a gate at the entrance. The gate now has a combination lock which all members can use for gain access to the grounds. If you need the combination, you can email the Webmaster by clicking here.
