Dick, looking over the auspicious list there's a good group of folks that have 
built observatories.  That experience will, no doubt, be a great asset for this 
project.

Great Going!

  Folks, I received this request for help from a local high school student who 
wants to refurbish her school's observatory and return it to operation.  I am 
willing to help her.  Anyone want to join me?  If so, please reply so I can 
make contact with Ally and set up a meeting.

    I have very limited experience with telescopes, so it was my wish to have 
any assistance possible in the pre planning (The bottom of the observatory has 
been damaged and needs to be rebuilt, but I would not know where to begin with 
drafting those plans) and then with the assembly of the telescope near the end 
of the project. Any and all help is entirely welcome! 

    Thank you so much,

    Ally Carr

      Dear Richard Harshaw,

             My name is Ally Carr and I am a student at Millennium High School 
in Goodyear, Arizona. It has recently come to my attention that my High School 
has most of the equipment, including a rotating observatory dome and 
telescopes, necessary to make an observatory. I have taken it upon myself to 
propose the restoration of this facility as my senior project. 

             Although this project has yet to be approved, it is my hope that I 
may receive help from the local Astronomy community. I believe it is incredibly 
important for my community to have access to an observatory in working 
condition, not in pieces scattered around campus. I can not do this without 
your help and expertise, and I hope you will find interest in restoring 
Goodyear's access to the stars. 

       

      Thank you so much for your time,

      Ally Carr
