For a second year, unfortunately there is no actual NEAF to attend. So once again stuck in the virtual world, we thought we might be able to create a bit of the sense of what goes on in our booth at a real NEAF. We hope to whet the appetite of those that have never been and let those experienced NEAF-goers do what they’ve done for us since the first NEAF in 1991… keep us talking about how Tele Vue products can satisfy their needs!
As our “home” show, we normally pack-up every Tele Vue product for display at NEAF. It’s a wonderful chance for people to get their hands on our equipment and really see and feel the care and quality we put into our products. While we’ll miss that personal interaction the most, the other valuable aspect of coming to visit us at NEAF is that you can ask us your questions and we can show you the answer.
With your help, we can do just that! We thought rather than listen to Al or David ramble on about esoteric product details on a video, let’s do what we do best at NEAF. We answer hundreds of your questions from eyepiece recommendations to DIOPTRX™, Night Vision, our Imaging System, even product philosophy and manufacturing questions — you name it! This is your chance to ask us your questions and we’ll respond in the video just as we would at NEAF.
So, please see the Ask your Tele Vue NEAF Question section below to ask us a question! Our intent is to create as many 5-minute video presentations as time allows to try to answer as many questions as possible during the virtual NEAF.
But wait, you don’t know what “NEAF” is? The annual, spring-time Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF) at Rockland Community College, in Suffern, New York is presented by the Rockland Astronomy club and has been since 1991. Tele Vue Optics has exhibited at every show since the beginning as well as contributing with on-stage presentations to attendees. Our booth in the College Field House isn’t just a Tele Vue showplace: if you’ve dropped by over the years, you’d have seen major product introductions along with video interviews conducted by the major amateur astronomy media. We’ve also had guests, such as the American Astronomical Society’s Chambliss Amateur Achievement Award winner, Dr. Don Bruns, in our booth answering your questions.
Tele Vue’s NEAF Booth Over the Years
This year NEAF will be virtual and free to attend online. Like the in-person shows, there will be presentations from various superstars in the fields of astronomy and space exploration. It will also run all day so feel free to drop-in from time-to-time to see what is going on.
