Hi everyone,
My high school recently got a Meade LX600 telescope donated to it and they are starting fundraising for an observatory to house the telescope. The current plan is to have equipment for solar monitoring, SETI equipment, a radio telescope, and much more. We recently obtained a pledge from a local foundation that will match up to $35,000 of funds raised. I am one of the student ambassadors for the project and we are tasked with some fundraising. I will try and post updates on the progress of the project on the way, I know we have some astronomy guys on here that I thought might be interested.

If anyone is interested in donating there is a PayPal account here:

For more information there is a Facebook page too:
