Tele Vue at AstroFest in London!

This Friday and Saturday, February 10 & 11, I’ll be at the European AstroFest in London at the Kensington Conference & Events Centre. If you want to try out some eyepieces or just talk Tele Vue with me, stop by the Widescreen Centre stand. AstroFest is celebrating their “silver” anniversary as this is their 25th show. There will be much to see and do. I’ll give a full report when I get back — Cheers!
