About the Longmont Astronomical Society
The Longmont Astronomical Society is a non-profit amateur astronomy club based in Longmont, Colorado. The club was founded in 1987 by people enthused about astronomy and who were looking for an avenue to share their enthusiasm with others of like interest. Since then the club's membership has grown to over 100 (both families and individuals) that embody all levels of experience and interest. All of the photos at right were taken by members of the club.

Unfortunately, Randy Cunningham is not able to present this month; we will try and get him back in the future. Instead, we offer a collection of brief discussions, as follows.
Tally O’Donnell will discuss his recent excursion to Chile for the total solar eclipse, and the great opportunities for visual astronomers in the Vicuña area of Chile
David Elmore will discuss his analysis of the CATE polarization study of the same eclipse.
Bill Tschumy will lead a brief discussion regarding selecting eyepieces for visual observation.
And Stephen Garretson will discuss the challenges and benefits of a dual telescope imaging setup.
