First annual Canadian Astronomy Telescope Show being held at the Sheridan College campus in Oakville, Ontario.

Looking forward to this out of pure curiosity, as I've never been to one of these type of 'shows' before.

Was at the show this weekend (almost all of Saturday), had a great time! Am going to post a more detailed report, but hadn't seen any other mention of it here on CN.

Anybody else attend? What were your thoughts?

Was great to see and talk to some old friends (Normand and Rock) as well as get to see and talk to all the different vendors and fellow enthusiasts.

Clear skies!

First day attendance was in the 500-600 range, I overheard from an organizer. Also overheard - there are 80 vendors confirmed for next year. Apparently many vendors will simply not go to a first-year trade show.

Excellent event!

I was there last year and had a blast. The seminars were great. Looking forward to this year. I see they are holding it at Mohawk College in Hamilton this year May 3rd and 4th. http://www.astrocats.ca/
