Fairborn Institute Astronomy Books

The Fairborn Institute was directly involved with planning, editing, and some cases helping in writing some seven books between 2010 and 2018. Six of the books focused on scientific research by smaller telescopes, while one focused on small telescope engineering developments. All of the books had editors that included one or more undergraduate or high school students.
