The Club's 6" f/12 Dobsonian Reflector
The 6" f/12 Dobsonian reflector is a home-built telescope donated to the club for general membership use. The long focal length makes this telescope ideal for lunar an planetary viewing. The deep-sky views aren't too shabby either. We have recently purchased a solar filter for this 'scope, which extends its optical verstility to the sun. Club members may borrow the 6" and its eyepiece collection for a nominal monthly fee.
