Winning Clubs of the 2015 Horkheimer Library Telescope Program

Submitted by on
Because of the generosity and vision of the Horkheimer Charitable Fund, the Astronomical League presented ten Library Telescopes at ALCon 2015 in Las Cruces. The names of ten clubs, one from each region, were drawn from the thirty-three total entries. These clubs will each receive an Orion 4.5 inch StarBlast Dobsonian Telescope, a Celestron 8-24 mm zoom eyepiece, and a commemorative plate, all to be modified by the respective club as a Library Telescope.
The Astronomical League wishes to thank Orion Telescopes and Celestron for making this program possible.
