A couple days ago, I first blogged about a new campaign underway to raise funds for the restoration and renovation of the famous 24-inch Clark refractor at Lowell Observatory. I’m mentioning it again because it’s a tremendously valuable and worthwhile effort that deserves immense support from the amateur astronomy community. I urge you to check out the site here to see more details, and I am posting a Lowell press release below. Please check out the links and explore them this weekend. Your involvement can make a big difference.
