Your Astronomical League is giving away up to eleven Library Telescopes!

Submitted by on
Through the vision of the Horkheimer Charitable Fund, the Astronomical League is again offering a free Library Telescope to a lucky Astronomical League club in each of the ten AL regions and to a Member-at-Large.

This wonderful program consists of an Orion 4.5 inch StarBlast Dobsonian (or equivalent) and a Celestron 8-24 mm zoom eyepiece (or equivalent), and a name plate commemorating the late Jack Horkheimer. The value of this opportunity is approximately $300; the potential of the program is enormous.

Submit your completed entry form so that the Astronomical League national office receives it by June 30, 2018. If mailed, the entry must be postmarked no later than June 30, 2018. The winning entry for each region will be announced at the annual Astronomical League Business meeting held at ALCon 2018 in Minneapolis about July 14. Full details of this wonderful program can be found at

The Library Telescope Program is a great club project, one that brings members together while benefiting their community. Indeed, it is the perfect outreach program!
