The Austin Astronomical Society seeks to encourage creativity and discovery in its members and in the individuals they encounter through their various functions and events. An observing session is incomplete without a telescope and what better way to express originality and ingenuity then through the design and execution of homemade apparatus. On display you will find various examples of homegrown telescopic devices and the creators will be available to answer any questions you might have about their creations. To take part in observations of your own join members for some hands on make it yourself astronomical craftwork including building your own planisphere, creating your own constellation cards and constructing your own solar system mobile.
