April Public Star Party Cancelled


Posted by Sean McClain, April 17th, 2020

Unfortunately, we have to cancel the public star party for April 24th. While I’m sure everyone is ready to get outside after winter, we’re going to have to wait a bit longer before we have public parties. Going forward we will make decisions on the next public event as it approaches.

On the upside, we had an outstanding April member meeting online. If you would like to join us, send an email at infosyracuseastro@gmail.com and we can get you into the online meeting.

At the April meeting, we had open floor discussions on observations and astrophotography among others, and we had two excellent lectures on a Barn Door Tracker project and a NexStar 8se Go-To Telescope Altitude Repair project.
