The annual Stellafane convention, organized by the Springfield Telescope Makers, took place August 1 – 4 around

their clubhouse on Breezy Hill in Springfield, Vermont. Stellafane is derived from the Latin for "shrine to the stars"

and is a National Historic Landmark. Considered the “home” of American Amateur Telescope Making (ATM), many

unique permanent telescopes dot the site along with the pink clubhouse.

 

Presented here is Al’s Stellafane in pictures. It includes images of him with workshop leaders, presenters, the keynote

speaker, and enthusiasts with their home-built scopes.
