A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from a writer who was interested in including my Skylight AR101.15 design in a piece he was doing on Telescopes. A flurry of emails followed to get a scope in his hands for a photo shoot that quickly followed and in a remarkable turnaround, my Skylight AR101.15 is in the 'Gear & Gadgets' section of the Wall Street Journal today (Saturday Sept. 21)!
It’s in the USA edition and may also be in the next Europe edition next week.
It’s also now online at the Wall Street Journal.
While the working reference of ‘Tools for the Amateur Astronomer’ has been changed, it’s a superb feature with an amazing presentation image.
From their initial contact with me to print day was only two weeks, so I could only do so much from this side of the Atlantic, so I owe a huge, public thank you to Albert in NJ who drove all through 2 states to get his scope to a photo shoot, the result of which is superb and visible on the article's featured picture! If you were at NEAF this year, you will have seen Albert's scope on display in the TeleVue booth.
So, a big thank you to Albert, & thank you for reading.
