2012 stellafane convention

The Springfield Telescope Makers will host the 77th annual Stellafane Convention August 16-19 on Breezy Hill in Springfield, Vermont. Amateur astronomers or telescope makers everywhere owe it to themselves to make at least one pilgrimage to Stellafane, a National Historic Landmark and the birthplace of amateur telescope making in America. This year's convention will feature keynote speakers The Meteorite Men, a special emphasis on solar observation, a broad program of workshops and talks, as well as observing opportunities using the on-site observatories and the scores of 'scopes brought by attendees (bring yours!). For more information, you can download a brochure here (pdf), and by all means visit the STM website here.
