Welcome! All of the members of the club would like to welcome you to our website. Please feel free to look around. We hope your experience on our website is enjoyable, informative, and problem-free. We all look forward to seeing you at the next club function!

Who are we? Well, apart from our mission statement above:

  • We are based in Southeast Michigan's Oakland County.
  • We operate a semi-dark sky observing site at Addison Oaks County Park, which is the home to the club's 17.5" dobsonian telescope. We're in the planning stages for building a permanent public observatory here!
  • We put on educational programs for local schools, parks, and other organizations, including Star Parties !

  • We publish a monthly newsletter full of interesting tidbits and stories about the club's many events and adventures.
