Last i was told we have over 800 families sighed up for the telescope loaner program at the FVRLibrary. In support of this, we at the FVAS are lending our guidance to them. Elliott M. has graciously accepted to help out with the maintenance of the scopes, while i will be doing the sky tours and helping new users find stuff in their scopes. We did hope to have a session last Thursday in Mission, but...the rain came.
Also we have a new scope to use for our group to help with our dark sky park observing. I would like to thank Carol dB for donating a complete working scope with oak case. As it is a refactor, all Schmidt cassigrains beware! Saturn never looked better. MMc
