Peoria Astronomical Society April Program to feature
two of Central Illinois’ Best Amateur Telescope Makers
Two PAS (Peoria Astronomical Society) members have build a telescope instead of buying one; one having just completed his second telescope. Don’t miss the April 1 program where it will be a "Show and Tell" featuring Rich Tennis and Greg Neaveill, two local, experienced telescope makers. Tennis completed his 17.5" Dobsonian back in 2005. Greg Neaveill completed his 10" Dobsonian back in 2009 and just completed his 8” Dobsonian-in-a-Briefcase. Get a look behind the scenes at what went into their making with a PowerPoint presentation by Rich and Greg in the Planetarium. All three telescopes will be on display at our meeting so you can touch (except the mirrors) and ask all the questions you want. PAS will hold its monthly meeting at 7:30 p.m. April 1 in the Planetarium at the Peoria Riverfront Museum. The meeting is FREE and open to the public. Free parking is available below the museum.
