Named in honor of Robert and Lisa Summerfield, for their exhaustive effort to spread astronomy to the public. The couple brings their collection of telescopes, one a 0.9-m reflector, to public star parties across the United States, and they complete several cross-country marathon drives in this effort. Their organization, "Astronomy To Go", sets up education sessions in dozens of schools each year. (M 30478) Citation prepared by David and Wendee Levy.
