Awww, I love listening to Dr. Filippenko on "The Universe" and "How the Universe Works". Had I had more teachers like him, I would have probably finished college.

OK Alan, I might have to try and pull this year off.


Me too, Matt! Had to cancel at the last minute first time.

Cool Alan, great speakers! How about Mike Brown (CalTech)? He's the guy who killed Pluto and discovered several dwarf planets, including Eris (Pluto's nemesis) and Sedna. He's an active prof at CalTech so his teaching schedule may get in the way. And he may be expensive - don't know. Just a thought.

>. .unlike anything anyone has ever seen before

I'm expecting maybe 180 degree AFV eyepieces, or something on the order of intelligent alien life forms. Please Alan, intelligent life forms! We need it badly.

I don't know if this is the right thread for posting suggestions. Hopefully Alan takes a look at it.

One of my favorite features in the past of the now dwindling RTMC was the Friday night show-and-tell sessions. There would be between 10 and 15 of these talks, and they all had a limit of something like 10 minutes. If enough amateur astronomers are attending ASAE, I wondered if an hour or two could be set aside for short presentations. I'd certainly be up for giving one, and it wouldn't be hard to convince others to do them as well.

Tom,

You found the right place to post your suggestion. The first thread in this forum is as good as any.

If you feel a topic is pertinent and timely,don't feel shy about starting a new thread.

Any idea when Vendor packets will go out? I have a campsite at Catalina State Park. All I need is to register for a booth.

And why is SBIG not listed here ??

They were missed at last year's event.

They went to NEAF !! And Arizona is a lot closer to California.

All those interested should contact SBIG and ask why (or is that Why Not ?? ). I will send an email off today !

I got a response back from Mike Barber (VP).
He is a member here on CN, and is very pro-active in customer support.

He indicates that they do plan on attending this year... :jump: :jump:

Now to watch for their name to appear on the list !!
