Special
Observing
Session

Our centre owes a tremendous debt of gratitude to Mr. Steve Dodson for what he did on July 3rd. On that date, Steve, who is an enthusiastic amateur astronomer from Sudbury, set up his amazing telescope near Odessa and gave us a chance to see and look through this fabulous instrument. His home-built 22" f-7.3 Newtonian is probably the largest portable telescope in the country and it gave us some breath-taking views of deep-sky objects like M 13 and the Ring Nebula. We are also thankful to Terry Dickinson for providing his darksky site for the occasion.
Great show, Steve! It was good to have the chance to meet you. Our centre is still buzzing with talk about your telescope and the work you put into it.
