About CAAC

The Central Appalachian Astronomy Club is a non-profit organization. Our goal is to promote amateur astronomy and share our experiences with others. We are partners in education with area schools and universities.    Membership is open to the public.  Meetings are held monthly at the home of our president Joe Gonzalez. This is also the location of our club's observatory. 

 Our Observatory

The observatory is a twenty foot Ash Dome and houses our 16 inch Meade LX200 telescope. Members are able to arrange viewing time on this amazing instrument. We can also show groups live images of objects using an electronic eyepiece to display on a large monitor.
