You can reverse engineer the guide by looking at the booth number on the map and then looking the numbers up in the alphabetical list...





Um, yeah - already figured that one out. Gets interesting with the larger vendors - did they have two or three slots? Guide doesn't list "426-428" - just the lowest slot number.
I was also doing this at 3am this morning - cut me some slack, woman...

Here's the Lunt team outside with their awesome solar scopes




The unbelievable solar scope array was one of the best sun gazing experiences of my life! And, I own a Lunt double stack 60! Blew me away and everyone else, too!!

The group responsible was the Charlie Bates solar observing outreach project. Dan Cook had the triple line up of scopes with two Explore Scientific scopes set up differnt ways and the 100 mm Lunt, to boot! One achro Explore was outfitted with a Lunt white light Hershel wedge. (Top) Middle scope is the Lunt 100 HA scope and the bottom was a Calcium K setup on another Explore. On the side was Dan's Lunt 80 double stack that has two pressure tuned etalons in series with each other! First time seeing this scope for me.

Next to Dan was Randy and Pam Shivak with the most incredible solar set up I have ever looked through! A 152 AP apo with a .5 A Daystar running at high magnification and below it was their 152 Lunt HA scope. Fantastic!

Off to the left was Alan Traino's 230mm Lunt HA super scope! No words can describe this amazing telescope. The largest commercially available, Lunt has to be the solar scope innovators of all time. They had the stage and did not miss the mark in awing the crowd! Especially me!

Here's a link to the Charlie Bates Project. An interesting story by itself! http://www.charliebates.org/

The AstroTrac Travel System. Everything fits in the pier, which fits in the bag. Not cheap (~$1900), but very slick.

That's it from me, folks. I know I missed a bunch of stuff - my apologies to all. I'll do a better job next year.
