Smash Hit Observing Session at DHO Last Night


Posted by dwormuth, September 16th, 2017

About 8 scopes and 20 or so members/public viewed the heavens last night at DHO.

The soon to be repaired (still about $500 short) chart room was toured. Hoping that we’ll have use of the big scope back by the October 21st observing session.
