Telescopes at the Tech
SJAA will be putting on a telescope display and demonstration at TheTech Museum in San Jose <http://www.thetech.org/> on Saturday and Sunday May 22/23. We have several activities planned:
If all goes well, at the end of the day on Sunday we will reassemble the Dob with the newly polished (but still unaluminized) mirror and take a look at the Moon.
This will be all day for two days so we need some volunteers to man the display and answer questions. We also need a few scopes for display. TheTech has an LX200 (naturally :-) that we will use but it would be nice to have a couple of nice scopes of other designs. We'll also need a mirror kit and the various bits and pieces that go into making a small Dob. If you can help with your time or equipment, please contact Bill Arnett ( mailto:email@example.com or 650-780-9645).
If you haven't been to TheTech, it is a very cool place. Well worth a visit, though it may take you a whole day to tear yourself away :-) Those helping with this event will get a free entry to the museum and if we have enough volunteers we'll all have time to wander around a little, too.
