From the Assistant Director

by Larry Kane, Assistant Director

After a report was made by the committee that investigated the purchase and installation of a video system for the observatory, a motion was made to the Board of Directors to approve the expenditure of up to $6,000 for the system. This motion was approved unanimously by the Board. The system will include a video camera, a monitor, a telescope and the appropriate hardware needed to install and operate the video system.

Because of the size of the expense of the video system, the approval of the AAAP membership is required  for this purchase. This motion will be made at the November, 11, 2014 membership meeting. I am recommending that if you are able, please attend the meeting on November 11 so you may be part of the discussion of this important improvement to our observatory.
