This project depicts home telescopes of all kinds, as well as other essential astronomy gear, along with the stargazers who enjoy them. The project would be a spinoff of Lego City Space and help show that significant contributions can be made to science by amateurs. They would be highly educational by offering realistic representations of astronomy equipment, and I would also like for each set to include a star map or map of an individual constellation to help builders learn about the night sky. The sets could be sold separately or together as a complete astronomy club!
MAIN PIC: Nothing like a night out under the stars! This set includes an astronomer, backyard with deck, fence, trees, lawn chair, SLR camera, binoculars, and a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with remote control, 90° diagonal and fork-arm tripod mount in a color scheme based heavily on the classic Celestron orange tube. 203 pieces
