Everyone might want to post them all here, so we have them in one place. I was getting sick when I took these, so I'm sure I missed some vendors and equipment - feel free to post what you've got.

First - the man who made it all happen:

Alan Traino, aka "Gone caving", aka The Energizer Bunny. I have no idea how I got this pic - he's normally a blur... ;)

Thanks for everything, Alan. Great show.

For those new to imaging: Ever wonder how big the cameras get?

Posted Image

Apogee. The spec sheets below the cameras are standard letter - 8.5" x 11".
I don't think they'll work for a C8 Hyperstar setup... :smirk:

More tomorrow. I'm sick as a dog, and going back to bed.

If you've got ASAE pics, go ahead and post them here.

Thanks for posting those Joe. I wanted to go so badly, and had to cancel at the last minute when my travel partner had to back out.

Thanks for the shots Joe. I'm really sorry I had to cancel. Looks like it was a good show. Next year for sure (maybe?)!!

Joe,

Thanks a lot for the pics and I hope you get well soon.

I had planned to go, but was forced to have surgery on my back instead. :p

Current plans have me in Arizona next spring (All Arizona Messier Marathon). You and I still have some pizza and beer that we need to finish off. :lol:

Cheers,

Ron

Great pics! I dropped in for a couple of hours on Sunday afternoon. My first show and it did not disappoint. I thanked a lot of the vendors for coming out and the impressions I got were that they all felt it went great. Hopefully this is the first of many more.

In order to support the vendors - I took delivery of my 18" Teeter / Zambuto dob! Amazing scope - I will post up pics in another thread when I get time.

Here's to next year's show (and weather) being even better!
