I've posted some of the photos that I took at the Northeast Astronomy Forum yesterday at https://www.facebook...828.10000053...

I'll be adding captions when time permits.

Nice pics,

you must of been the ES booth right after I left cause he didn't leave to 30mm in the scope too long.

why would you show off a camera you don't sell and leave off the monster eyepiece you do sell?
