We had great success at our first Annual Telescope Tune Up day yesterday !
We had about 18 people bring in telescopes for cleaning, alignment, and instruction !
Thanks to our hardworking volunteers !
Thanks to Steve Fentress and Strasenburgh for allowing us to set up in the lobby.
All of our customers were very happy and excited we were able to help them.
We had a fantastic talk for our main speaker last night from the RIT Space Exploration group !
They showed us the cool cube satellite projects they are working on.
