** OUTREACH SPONSOR **
For those who enjoy giving more than receiving
For every $20 you pledge, one 18-inch Messier Observer's Planisphere from our first production printing will be donated in your name to an astronomy outreach program in central Texas. These planispheres will be given to members of the public who are eager and excited to learn about the night sky.
** ASTRONOMY WEEKEND **
In addition to receiving an 18-inch Messier Observer's Planisphere from our first production printing and a red LED flashlight, you and a friend will join us for a weekend under the stars at our private observatory in Pontotoc, Texas. Spend 2 nights observing the heavens through a 20-inch telescope with an astronomer (me) as your guide. You will see planets, galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, and more! And, of course, we will teach you how to use your new planisphere.
We will coordinate with you to pick a date for your stellar getaway that fits your schedule. Meals and sleeping accommodations included. Travel not included.
