This is the place to find photographs of activities and astrophotography done by members of the Platte Valley Astronomical Observers. If you have club photos to submit, please e-mail me at the link below.  Please note our most prolific astrophotographer is Bob Runyan.  It's impossible for me to keep up with all the wonderful images he creates!  Fortunately Bob has taken it upon himself to maintain his own photo web site.  Click on the menu about to view his wonderful images.
