Seeing Gary Palmer talk is worth the price of admission alone.
Thanks for sharing,

Solar viewing at the Lunt exhibit was outstanding. I was able to use Canon IS binos for the first time and can now appreciate their appeal for handheld viewing. At night, people lined up for views through a variety of large refractors, Dobsonians, and SCTs. For me, best-of-show went to views of M13. Through a large refractor, M13 was a clear patch of light that floated in the midst of pinpoint stars in the surrounding field of view. But over at a Celestron EdgeHD, M13 was stunning, resolved into hundreds of individual visible stars.

In my opinion this event was the best outreach based event ever. This is really the type of event that needs to happen for this hobby. I will be returning next year for sure!

As a vendor though this show had very long days 10am to 11pm. Many vendors were tired.

I had a lady come and take a look at Saturn through the scope she took a quick look and then stood up and asked me:
"how do get the picture inside there?"
I told her I didn't quite understand the question and after she clarified it turns out she thought she was looking at a lighted pictured of saturn and not through a telescope!
