Since 2012, the Club has held Star Parties at the Tye Preston Memorial Library.   The Library is home to the Ravenstar Outdoor Education Brown Smith Observatory.  The Observatory houses a Celestron Schmidt Cassegrain....or SCT. 11 inch.  On Astronomy Nights, members of the club set up their scopes nearby.  First everyone is invited into the Library for a presentation to learn what they may view that evening and then they go up to the observatory for an evening under the stars.  If weather conditions prevent the use of telescopes, then there are more astronomical presentations inside.
