<h1>Help Us Buy a CCD Camera</H1>
The Ryerson Astronomical Society is a student-run organization with a
45 year history of advanced amateur astronomy and public outreach.
Our observatory, located atop the University of Chicago's Ryerson
Physical Laboratory, frequently enjoys sub-arcsecond seeing in our
six-inch refractor and ten-inch Newtonian reflector.
We feel that a CCD camera would allow us to record excellent, high
resolution views of the planets and greatly extend our views of deep
sky objects. We are presently collecting money into a fund to buy a
CCD camera, and would appreciate any donation.
If you would like to make a donation,
make checks payable to <strong>The University of Chicago</strong> and

We would also welcome donations of equipment, especially old CCD or
video cameras and computer hardware. For more information, contact
