I got started in astronomy in the 1990s while I was still in High School. I spent cold clear winter nights in Northern New York learning the basics together with my father on an 8″ Schmidt Cassegrain. I remember trying to manually guide my first prime focus images of M42 with the 2,000mm focal length SCT, shooting 35mm film in 10°F temperatures. The results were predictably flawed and after I went off to college the scope and gear were put away. I went west after finishing school and my astronomy interest faded away under the light polluted sky of Southern California.
We’re excited to jump back into the filter game with our new Bandmate Type 2 Filter series! Visitors at the recent Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF) got the first peek at our initial three offerings and the opportunity to buy as stock arrived just in time for the show.
Tele Vue will be exhibiting at two back-to-back shows just an hours drive north of New York City this week. The Northeast Astro-Imaging Conference (NEAIC) is Thursday and Friday and the Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF)is Saturday and Sunday. You can buy tickets at the door for either (follow links at end of blog post).
If you post a photo of our booth at either event on social media, use the following harshtag sequences so we can like it:
