The purpose of The Tonopah Astronomical Society is to promote interest in astronomy and related sciences in the Central Nevada area for the general public and the club membership. We do this through scheduling telescope viewing session, commonly referred to as "Star Parties," in the Tonopah area and throughout the Central Nevada area and in cooperation with groups having similar interests in the State of Nevada.

The Tenth Annual Central Nevada Star Party   (CNSP X)

 CNSP X will mean a decade of Star Parties in the crisp, clear skies of Central Nevada.

Last year the skies were clear and calm and I see no reason to think they will be any different this year.
