Outreach Science Education

Astronomers and engineers Sonny Tremolet, Dave Armstrong and Dave Ingram were some of my UW Project ASTRO colleagues; in 2005 they shocked me out of my socks with the most amazing birthday present ever: an 8" Dobsonian Reflector telescope. The ribbon is still attached, 7 years later, and will have to rot off! The optics are superb; I have better views of Saturn than bigger scopes and better experts can get!
