AAL Facilities

The Astronomy Associates of Lawrence hold an open public observing session at the Prairie Park Nature Center at 2730 Harper St. every month, weather permitting, usually on the last Sunday of the month. Telescopes owned by members of the club are set up for direct viewing through an eyepiece or via a video display of the telescope field of view.

Observing the Moon and Jupiter at Praire Park Nature Center

Anyone is welcome to come out and share the view and to bring their own scopes that may be sitting around unused. Club members are more than happy to help guide novice observers through the process of setting up and using a scope.

Schedule of Open Houses and Club meetings.

The Pitt 27-Inch Telescope

The mirror for the 27" telescope formerly located at KU on the roof of Lindley Hall has been donated to NEKAAL (www.nekaal.org) who has installed in on a new optical tube and mount to use for asteroid and NEO research at Farpoint Observatory.  You can learn more about this exciting project by visiting their website listed above. Farpoint Observatory is used by club members in Topeka who also host monthly public observing sessions on the site.
