PROGRAM: Sandy Stine introduced Ed Cook who presented “Skies Unlimited – Lancaster’s Largest Telescopes” from the Joseph R. Grundy Observatory at F&M. Ed made it easy for us – he adjusted the telescopes and we viewed Jupiter and its moons from a 132 year old refractory telescope! What an amazing night! FYI – the observatory is open to the public on select nights. See the Joseph R. Grundy website for dates and times.
