Astronomy magazine podcast: Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston

Virginia Renehan, president of the Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston, talks about her group and provides resources for those wanting to make homemade instruments.
September 20, 2007
In this new series, we'll visit with astronomy clubs from around the world.

The Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston (ATMoB) traces its roots back to the 1930s. In 1973, the Bond Astronomical Society, another long-standing club, merged with ATMoB, making one of the oldest and largest general-interest astronomy clubs in the United States.

In this week's show, Virginia Renehan, president of ATMoB, discusses her club's activities and the art of telescope making.
