Election Results
We have two new board members: Gabe Shaughnessy and Mike Wagner. All of the officers were re-elected, except Lee Keith was elected to Vice-Present. The Board voted to make Paul Borchardt a Founder Member.

We now have a brand new F-Scope, a Stellarvue SVQ100 F5.8 Astrograph to replace the C14. And a new imaging camera, a ZWO ASI1600MM Cool. The mount is an AP GTO900. It sits in the Toeller Observatory. Testing is complete and it is now in operation

The MAS Periodic Table of Messier Objects. Here is the status of our effort to image every Messier object. We are soliciting images from all members to help us complete this chart. When complete, a large poster will be made and hung in the Quonset.
