28 "Now, where'd that pesky Sun go?" Nice Traveller (I think).

Fittingly for a company that leaves nothing to chance and pays so much attention to detail, AP's malted chocolate balls and other candies were the tastiest in the show!

Neil,

Thanks for the pics. You covered most of mine, with the exception of two small items that got my interest:

(1) the Vixen Polarie Star Tracker (a motorized camera mount)

Nice Pics- I thought that custom TEC astrograph is f/4.4 (not 1.44) and built exclusively for the attached camera. I could be wrong. Hard to interpet the label.

Here are some photos of the TEC scope from their yahoo group.
It appears to be f1.44 alright.
