Door County stargazing now easier

Some technical upgrades at the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society observatory in Sturgeon Bay are bringing the heavens into clearer focus with easier access.  Two new telescopes and cameras are now in operation at the observatory along with an 80-inch video monitor.  David Lenius, President of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society, says the new equipment brings distant celestial objects into clearer view for a few more people at the observatory and on the internet.

 

 

 

Lenius says the new telescopes and cameras are similar to those previously found at colleges or universities. More information on how to access the live web feeds is available with this story on our website.
