Astronomy Club President Miles Mercier works with the 9.25" imaging telescope inside the Sherzer Secondary Observatory.
Come see the wonders of the universe through Eastern Michigan University's 10-inch apochromatic refractor telescope and via computerized telescopes on our scenic observation deck. On clear meeting nights, the observatory will be opened to stargaze. On cloudy nights, presentations or planetarium shows may be held indoors. Dress for Michigan weather just in case the sky happens to be clear!
