Albrecht Observatory - C Shed

Albrecht Observatory / C-Scope This observatory is named for Bill and Anne Albrecht. Bill Albrecht was a founder member who was active in the construction and maintenance of the observatory for 40 years as well as an active observer of variable stars, lunar occultations, and total solar eclipses.

Anne served as Treasurer of the MAS for many years. They met each other at the MAS Observatory!

The Albrecht observatory houses the C-Scope. It is a Celestron C9.25-S-GT Advanced Series GT Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and sits on a Celestron Advanced VX CG-5 mount which gives it GoTo capability. It is also fitted with a 9X30 finder scope.
