Club Telescope

These images were taken by members of the Northern Sky Astronomical Society at the UND Space Studies Planetary Science Observatory. The first group was imaged using an NGT 18" from JMI. Space Studies has since donated the telescope to the astronomy club and is frequently used at star parties, including the annual event at Roosevelt National Park.

The second group of pictures below was taken using an Orion ShortTube 80mm refractor mounted on the side of the NGT 18". Both telescopes used an ST6 CCD camera from SBIG
