The Star Gazer

For nearly a decade, the Springfield Stars Club produced a semiannual collection of articles contributed by club members and other astronomy enthusiasts called The Star Gazer. In all, twelve volumes were published between 1987 and 1996, with articles on all aspects of astronomy and telescope making. Richard Sanderson served as Editor of the Stargazer throughout its nine-year run.

Selected articles from the Star Gazer have been reproduced here for online viewing.
