Hartness House Workshop

The Hartness House Workshop is held all day Thursday before convention. These are a few pictures of the Stellafane solar scope set up on the Hartness House Lawn. See Page 2 (Attendee Photos) for many more Hartness House Workshop photos.

Clubhouse, Porter Turret Telescope & Breezy Hill

A few images from around the Stellafane Clubhouse, the Porter Turret Telescope and the observing fields.
For more images of the instruments entered in the competition, see the Telescope Competition page.

McGregor Observatory & South Observing Field

A lot happens in this area: Many programs in the McGregor Library; lots of observing and camping; and of course plenty of
 observing with the 13-inch Schupmann and in the domed observatory. And this is where the big Dobs hang out.

Flanders Pavilion and the
Amateur Telescope Making Demonstration

Many of our large program of talks is held in the Flanders Pavilion. The ATM demo, held just north of the pavilion, informs people about how to make a telescope and it's optics, and  gives them a chance to try out mirror grinding.

Around the Convention

Photos from all around the 2013 convention, a potpourri of images that just don't fit in anywhere else.

Saturday Evening Program

Photos from the Saturday Evening Program. This year, we have a couple of panoramas of the amphitheater, and several photos from the Astronomical League awards.
