Cache Valley Astronomical Society is an amateur astronomy club for Cache Valley Utah. Our goal is to educate the public and its members about astronomy and to help our members grow in the hobby of astronomy.
Our members come from all careers, backgrounds and levels of knowledge about astronomy. What brings us together is our love for astronomy and the space sciences and desire to share that knowledge with our friends, neighbors and the community of Cache Valley.
We hope our website will provide you with information about our club, its goals as well as information about astronomy.
CVAS Donates Telescope to Logan Library
June 9 2018
CVAS President Dell Vance met with Logan Library Director Karen Clark to donate an Orion StarBlast 4.5 inch telescope for the public to check out.
This is an ideal loaner telescope. It has quality optics that give great field of views and novice user friendly. A number of modifications have been
made to make the telescope more user friendly and enhance to borrowers observing experience. Library telescopes have the opportunity to increase the interest in amateur astronomy and draw more young people into astronomy. CVAS hopes to place the same type of telescope in other Cache Valley libraries in the future.
