Jon Isaacs


Every so often, we like to take note of some of our exceptional members with star contributor award.

Jon Isaacs is an old hand at internet forums, (seems like I've known him forever), and in every venue - he has always stepped to the forefront with his sage advice and friendly manner. It's folks like this who help to make this place the best it can be.

Jon, thank you for being a member. We can't imagine CN without you.

Glen LeDrew


Please join us in congratulating Glenn LeDrew as the latest recipient of the Star Contributor Award. For a long time now, he has been providing optical expertise in several forums, among them the telescope forums and binoviewers and regularly in binoculars. Never critical of another member, always careful to explain things fully in a mild mannered form. He's extremely knowledgable, very helpful, polite and considerate. Glenn offers his knowledge and help freely and without bias here on Cloudy Nights forums. We're fortunate to have him as a member.
