Tuesday Evening, June 20, 7:30 PM
Star*Quest Obervatory, 1730 S Webster Rd, New Haven, IN 46774


Building a Suitcase Telescope
by Greg Jacobs, Phil Hudson, Jim Brudi, Larry Clifford, Mikal Pulse

The June General will be on a Star*Quest Project, the brain child of the late BJ Harper, and organized by TekVenture's president and current FWAS member Greg Jacobs. The project encouraged building a telescope that would fit in a carry-on-baggage compartment of a airliner, with up to an 8-inch mirror. It was based on a article by Gary Seronik: http://garyseronik.com/building-the-outback-travelscope

There were four FWAS members interested. They met about 8 weeks on Wednesdays, starting August 15, 2016. This is their story.

 

General Meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month, 7:30pm. Check our web site for location.
