Astronomy Hacks @ the 21st Annual Cathedral Gorge star party


Make’s own Katie Dougherty sent a few copies of Astronomy Hacks to the Las Vegas Astronomical Society, and she heard back from Geary Keilman, the President of the group. Sounds like the books made it into good hands!

Here are the names and some pictures of the winners of the Astronomy Hacks books you generously donated to our 21st Annual Cathedral Gorge Star Party.

The ugly guy with the black shirt and shades is me.

Thank you for supporting our star party and publishing such a great astronomy book for beginners.

I'm a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I'm not tinkering, I'm probably editing a book for Maker Media.
