Greetings fellow astrophiles!
This just in from Patrick Manley (plus a few days of delay in posting by yours truly)!
Our friends (and, for some, fellow members) at the Kopernik Astronomical Society have updated the event schedule for AstroFest 2014, consistently one of the very best weekends for amateur astronomy in New York. Included in the roster for the weekend are lectures by:
Dr. Luke Keller – Ithaca College NASA’s SOFIA Mission
(And our very own) Bob Piekiel – “Barefoot Bob” The History of Celestron Telescope Collimation
And a special memorial dedication (and solar observing session) to Barlow Bob.
For all the details, see the Kopernik AstroFest 2014 website. Several CNYO members will be in attendance and are happy to organize carpools down for both Friday and Saturday. We hope you can join them AND us!
