It’s almost time to board the plane for my biennial trip to the “Rencontres du Ciel et de l’Espace” (RCE). The show takes place from November 1st through 3rd at the Museum of Science and Industry in Paris and features over 150 lectures (in French of course) over the three days with vendors spread over two floors. Daily attendance is in the neighborhood of 2,500 people, so it’s a busy show! Continue reading “Tele Vue: We’ll Always Have Paris!“
If ever there was an event that bound together every living thing on this planet, the disappearance of the Sun during broad daylight reminds us of just how reliant, fragile and connected we are.

He already owned an NP101 but wanted the enhanced features of the “is” version and the plan was to sell the original NP101. Well as we’ve heard from many Tele Vue telescope owners: he just couldn’t part with an old friend. Richard still owns his original NP101 and images with his NP101is.

Widescreen Centre always puts their best foot forward for Tele Vue. They provided me with all the goodies to satisfy our customers — even down to the smallest adapters which I was sure nobody would need. Sure enough, our good friend known as “Mr. T” needed that QuikPoint Adapter bracket. Real “heads up” to Simon and Elena from the Widescreen Center and a big THANK YOU for making it such a good time. No wonder I keep coming back to this show :-). Continue reading “AstroFest Update: Widescreen Centre & FoneMate Demo”
