The Prairie Astronomy Club April Meeting

April 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Prairie Astronomy Club was founded in 1961 as a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging the study of Astronomy and related subjects for the benefit of its members and the general public. The club presently has over 80 members with a wide variety of interests ranging from simple naked-eye sky gazing to deep-sky objects, variable star observing, and the use of computers. The club holds monthly meetings open to the general public on THE LAST TUESDAY OF EACH MONTH, unless the date conflicts with a major holiday. The meetings are held at 7:30 p.m. at the HYDE MEMORIAL OBSERVATORY located in HOLMES PARK in southeast LINCOLN, NEBRASKA. Each meeting consists of a short business session, planning for upcoming events, and one or two short programs followed by refreshments and conversation.

Join the club on April 30 at 7:30pm, as they welcome Robert Teeter, founder of Teeterscopes LLC, who will talk about optimizing Dobsonian telescopes and some of the interesting builds he’s done over the years.  Formed in 2002, Teeter’s Telescopes has been custom building dobsonian telescopes ranging from 8″ F/6 ton 24″ F/3.5 and nearly every aperture and focal length combination between.
