Astronomics Grand Opening Date is...
Posted 15 June 2012 - 10:13 PM
We have firm commitments from Celestron, TeleVue, Explore Scientific, and Lunt. I know we will have some others before too long, but we aren't sure about anything else. All I know we will have a good time and look forward to seeing everyone there.
I will be updating this thread as we find out more about the date. This will be a sort of test run for the viability of a central US show. Since Alan said he will make it, don't make me look bad in front of the head NEAF honcho, so show up and make Middle America look good.

The rest of the displays (eyepieces in particular) are still being assembled but it's well worth a visit if you are in striking distance. On my way out I asked how traffic has been and was told that Saturdays in particular are steady with browsers all day long, and that in-store sales have already jumped dramatically, which surely means more newcomers getting into the hobby, since most of us here on CN already have all the astro-gear we need . . . right?
On top of being some of the nicest folks in the business Astronomics is now officially the most spacious. We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming . . .

Was passing by lunchtime today and snapped this ...
Does that say the 19th? Thought it was the 29th
Surely not, the 19th is in the middle of the week on a Wednesday. I cant make it then and I'm sure a lot of others that will be making the drive wont either.

It says the 29th. The reflection from the street makes it hard to tell.
Whew! GOOD! Had me worried. Sure looks like it says 19th
