The founding of Astronomy Club — shaping the direction of things to come. Building telescopes from scratch.
Building interest in the club, finishing custom telescope projects, coming up with the idea for an observatory
The building of Truman Kohman Observatory, special presentations, and movie screenings
Waxing and waning interest in the club. The retirement of Truman Kohman in 1990. Fixing up the observatory as it grew older. Buying telescopes, collaborating with SEDS to build a CCD camera
Stable club membership, first participation in booth/spring carnival. Decline in use of the Truman Kohman observatory toward the end of the decade.
Revitalizing the observatory. Ambitiously expanding the club budget. Purchasing lots of new telescopes, eyepieces, equipment. Taking regular trips to Allegheny Observatory, NRAO.
