Our member (and member of the Springfield Telescope Makers) Rick Hunter will be showing and telling the story of his refractor telescope project. Although making the mirror for his reflector telescope only involved two things (the mirror and the tool he used to grind it into shape), the refractor involves shaping and polishing both sides of two glass lenses to precision!

The second floor of the Town Hall is handicap accessible via a ramp in the rear parking lot and an elevator.
