The University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy has set aside an annual Astro Day in order to promote astronomy to the community and general public. In 2005, after a Celestron representative met with Gary Fujihara, the organizer of the Astro Day event, the telescope company decided to donate two Celestron telescopes to the university. The Celestron telescopes included an 8” Celestron CPC 800 GPS computerized telescope and an 11” Schmidt-Casegrain optical tube. The Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii will be using the telescopes for their science education and public outreach programs.
