  • NP101is: Imaging the Skies Over Northern California! (10/23/2019)
    Michael Stark talks about his journey into astro-photography and why he uses the Tele Vue-NP101is to achieve his goals.
  • NP101is: Imaging the Skies Over Louisiana (05/22/2019)
    Astro-imager Phil Wollenberg takes us on a rich nebula tour of the night sky with his Tele Vue-NP101is: "I have been really impressed with the sharpness of the Tele Vue-NP101is. During lunar viewing, other astronomers who look through my scope often comment on the sharpness, clarity, and lack of any false colors."
  • Tele Vue-NP101is Imaging the Skies of Rhode Island! (10/24/2018)
    We found unique takes on familiar deep-sky objects on David Augros' AstroBin account taken with the Tele Vue-NP101is refractor. He says, "this rugged refractor gives me geometrically perfect stars well outside the center of my images. The tube's wide open focuser gets plenty of light onto my full frame Canon 6D sensor, illuminating right to the edge of the field. If I take good flat frames for my imaging session, I often will not even need to crop".
  • Dr. Bruns at NEAF 2018 (May 4, 2018)
    This is the concluding post that summarizes Dr. Bruns' results with the NP101is as presented at the Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF) in April 2018.

    The Tele Vue NP101 (visually equivalent to the NP101is) on the center-line of the Great American Eclipse!
  • Tele Vue NP101is to Test Einstein's General Relativity (3/21/17)
    This post explains why Dr. Don Bruns choose the NP101is to repeat the 1919 experiment of measuring star deflections during a solar eclipse that confirmed Einstein's theory of Relativity. (There were also several update posts after this.)
