August Presentation


NAA Annual Fundraiser Auction


Presenter: Naperville Astronomical Association
Date: Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016
Location: Naperville Municipal Center, downstairs meeting rooms B & C (see map for directions)
Time: 7:30 pm.

The annual NAA fundraiser auction will be held at our August 2nd monthly meeting. This auction will help us raise funds for maintenance and improvements to our Astronomy Education Center and its observatory buildings.

So remember that huge mirror blank you always “meant” to grind, sitting in the basement? That optical tube you meant to build the Dob mount for and never did? The telescope you bought for your kid sitting lonely and unused in the garage? It is not too late to start cleaning out those closets, drawers, and boxes for any astro-stuff, large or small, that has been sitting unused. Note we also have a tradition of auctioning yummy baked goods.

Auction is cash or check (checks from NAA members only).

The public is welcome to attend, free of charge.




 

August Fundamentals Program


Hands-on Telescope Clinic


Presenter: NAA Members
Date: Tuesday, August 16th, 2016
Location: Naperville Municipal Center, downstairs meeting rooms B & C (see map for directions)
Time: 7:30 pm.

Remember that at our general meetings, after the lectures, we hold a business meeting, and then anyone may ask our members for advice about telescopes and astronomy. At our August Astronomy Fundamentals Meeting, we will devote our meeting to displaying various telescopes and answering your telescope questions.

NAA members will bring in their various scopes and you can check out out, ask questions and learn about the features and benefits of each. We will also discuss needed accessories for starting out (and some that would just be fun).

Even if you are not a member, come along and learn more about telescopes, or about buying one, and of course, learn about our club.

The public is welcome to attend, free of charge.



     

Next NAA Board Meeting:

The next meeting of the NAA Executive Board will be August 9th at the Culver's Restaurant, Naperville (Rt. 59 & 75th St.). Starting time 7:30 pm, all N.A.A. members are welcome to attend.
