NEAF is sponsored by the Rockland Astronomy Club and Sky & Telescope Magazine
at Rockland Community College, Suffern, NY

NEAF is held in the field house at the Rockland Community College.

Talent deserving wider recognition: Two young machinists from Michigan are making these beautiful
mounts in a home workshop!

As a Questar owner for the past quarter-century, I was naturally
drawn to the Questar booth. Questar has managed to maintain
the highest standards of fit and finish on these instruments
for the past 50 years.

The Denkmeier Binoviewer

A lot of people lined up to buy cosmetically imperfect eyepieces and other
sale items at the Tele Vue booth.

Speaking of Tele Vue, that’s “Uncle” Al Nagler, the genius behind
Tele Vue and the Nagler eyepieces. Al was showing the
“eye-popping surprise” that he had said on the Tele Vue
web site would be announced at NEAF—an attachment
that fits many Nagler eyepieces and that corrects
for astigmatism. Seen on the scope above
is Al’s new FOCUSMATE™ fine focus accessory. 

Speaking of geniuses, Dr. Rob Gendler, who is arguably the
finest astrophotographer in the known Universe,
shows his incredible photomosaic of the Orion Nebula.
I bought two of Dr. Gendler’s posters (autographed, of course)
to inspire me to try harder...
