Our fellow member and friend, Jim Anderson, shown here with his telescope at one of the
ACA Observatory events.  Jim always set up in the same location - on the blacktop at the
northwest corner of the observing field.  This image was taken by member Mark North in
the spring as Jim was preparing for a night of observing at our annual Messier Marathon.

                                           
Jim's kind smile will always be remembered by his fellow members.  Born on 11/2/1947,
Jim passed away in his sleep on 1/27/2006 at the age of 58.  Our events haven't seemed
the same since.  We could always count on Jim being in his familiar corner anxious to show
everyone the beauty of the heavens.

Jim was featured in an article that appeared in the Beacon Journal newspaper
during the close approach of Mars in August of 2003.  The Beacon photographer
arrived prior to Mars clearing the trees to the east of the observatory so Jim is
shown here providing views of the Moon.
