Thanks for the pics hfjacinto. Kinda bittersweet for me seeing them though. It looks like it was another good year for NEAF. I was almost able to go, but I just couldn't cause some things came up. I hope you had a great time though!!!

Thanks for sharing those photos, Helder! It was great getting the chance to meet you at last year's NEAF, but sadly I wasn't able to make it this year--maybe next time.

Scott, it was weird not seeing the CN crew. I also took pictures of beer and meat at Defiant Brewery, but I can't find them ;)

Glad someone took pictures, my camera battery died instantly.

Caught me in pic 16/31 (beige baseball cap) asking (Ms?) Nagler where the TV replacement eyepiece caps are. :grin:

Helder - Nice photos!

I was very disappointed that I couldn't go to NEAF this year. The kids had vacation and my wife really wanted to go someplace warm so I gave up my annual NEAF visit.

Since we did go to Puerto Rico, on Sunday instead of being able to drive to NEAF I drove across the Island on my own to see this:

Pretty incredible isn't it. It's prompted me to do some reading on radio astronomy.

Can't wait for NEAF 2014.

I was suprised how dirty the dish was. They also don't let you go to the dish itself, 7 years ago you could.

Not as much as he use to be, but loves taking credit for getting me back into it, " I got you into back into asronomy didn't I daddy."

I find it hard to believe that no one bought the slightly tube dented EdgeHD C-14 that Gary Hand was selling at a big discount. It was dropped unloading, and had a small quarter-size dent on one side.... otherwise OK, never used, and still with full Celestron warrantee. If I had the bucks, I would have gotten it!
