CLUB DESCRIPTION

We operate the Palisades-Dows Observatory, which includes a 24 inch Boller and Chivens Cassegrain telescope and 4 other permanently mounted telescopes, plus numerous portable telescopes.  The facility can seat up to 150 guests in the meeting room.  We host at least 12 public programs per year, and have about 30 private groups each year at the observatory.  We publish a monthly newsletter, and have monthly membership meetings and weekly observatory committee meetings open to any member.  Our library has about 800 books and 2000 magazines, available only to members.
