As a teenage amateur astronomer and telescope nut, I had the perfect job--working for Al Jaegers at A. Jaegers Optical Corporation from 1968 to 1970.

Three Deep Sky Video Cameras for Under $100
Nov 27 2014  Video astronomy has been around for more than 20 years. And most will associate it with lunar, solar and planetary imaging/viewing. However, with the advances in video surveillance cameras and astronomy specific adaptations of these cameras in the late 90's and early 2000's, video cameras have been increasingly directed at a wide range of deep sky objects. While it is possible to spend hundreds of dollars to nearly two thousand dollars on some of the latest video astronomy cameras, I have been amazed at the depth and breath of deep sky objects which are accessible with cameras available for less than $100.

Binocular Universe: Trumpler's Triangle
Nov 26 2014  Over the years, this column has included several off-the-beaten-path objects that go ignored in most observing handbooks. This month, I’d like to continue that tradition by paying a call on the first three entries in a catalog of open star clusters published in 1930 by Swiss-American astronomer Robert J. Trumpler.
