We will be happy to take a look at that telescope that was lovingly used and now just doesn't get its time under the sky.  Take a few photographs and send us an email... we can let you know if it is useful for our loaner program or for our HS Astronomy Club kiddoes.

Current Goals for Upgrades:

  1. Acoustical wall coverings (aesthetic and acoustic upgrades) 
  2. A Hearing Loop system to directly connect our clients using hearing aids and cochlear implants to the audio in our programs.
  3. Install RGB Laser projectors to replace the no longer serviceable, lamp based projectors we have in place.

Our mission is to engage, inspire and educate people of all ages in astronomy and science in general.

We can not thank you enough for your help supporting us as we work toward that goal!
