These past two months were good ones for the club. We had a talk given by yours truly which I hope wasn't too boring. We also took part in EOH. I am proud to say that our project C.A.T.S. (Computer Aided Telescope System) won us and our partners at the Association for Computing Machines 2 prizes. We received third prize in the interdisciplinary category, and also received third prize in the Lockmiller Robotics Contest. The robotics contest won us a check for $100 which will be used to help purchase more parts for the scope. For next year, we have already begun planning an improved tracking system and a CCD (Charged Coupled Device) camera to be mounted on the 12-inch and its soon to be constructed finderscope. I want to offer my personal thanks and congratulations to the project leader Jeremy Hicks on his outstanding job.
