ASAE 2012 Photo thread
      #5515306 - 11/11/12 11:46 PM

Everyone might want to post them all here, so we have them in one place. I was getting sick when I took these, so I'm sure I missed some vendors and equipment - feel free to post what you've got.

First - the man who made it all happen:



Alan Traino, aka "Gone caving", aka The Energizer Bunny. I have no idea how I got this pic - he's normally a blur...

Thanks for everything, Alan. Great show.

For those new to imaging: Ever wonder how big the cameras get?



Apogee. The spec sheets below the cameras are standard letter - 8.5" x 11".
I don't think they'll work for a C8 Hyperstar setup...

Joe,

Thanks a lot for the pics and I hope you get well soon.

I had planned to go, but was forced to have surgery on my back instead.

Current plans have me in Arizona next spring (All Arizona Messier Marathon). You and I still have some pizza and beer that we need to finish off.

Cheers,

Ron

Great pics! I dropped in for a couple of hours on Sunday afternoon. My first show and it did not disappoint. I thanked a lot of the vendors for coming out and the impressions I got were that they all felt it went great. Hopefully this is the first of many more.

In order to support the vendors - I took delivery of my 18" Teeter / Zambuto dob! Amazing scope - I will post up pics in another thread when I get time.

Here's to next year's show (and weather) being even better!

No, I was always going to come back and get them but the gravity pull from the Plane Wave and TEC setups pinned my arms down.

Looks like I got Starizona on a deflection shot while drooling on the AP Starfire. Too fuzzy to be sure, but I think that's Dean Koenig over by the end of the Starizona booth.

The new APO Markus brought to the show, that I was sorely tempted to get and didn't. By the way, he had a Meopta zoom in there (not well known over here but very fine optics) and a Lieca zoom - which proved to me it is worth the money they ask for it. Very very nice.

Here it is. Explore Scientific 30mm 100 degree prototype. The barrel is 3", and requires a custom diagonal. Shown next to the 30/82, which ain't exactly tiny:

I just happen to have a shot of the Lunt ED refractors.

The focusers were very nice. The knobs are larger than the standard Long Perng ones. I was told they are sourced from Taiwan. The coatings looked quite good, the focusers were smooth. They all come with cases. The 80mm has a slip on cap, while the 70mm and 102mm have thread- on caps which thread on to the sliding dew/ glare shields.

In person, the white pearl finish is very pretty- and a bit subtle. Ha and CaK kits are available for all of them (naturally).

Lunt has their offices across town from me. They said if I called ahead I can see them, though they don't have a formal showroom. It is possible to get a tour as well. And they sell scopes direct or via dealers.

Very handsom and good looking scopes, though.

By the way, that smaller TEC RC is a 12" (yeah, from 2 feet away I was guessing 250mm, too. What's more, it's f/5.6! I've never heard of an RC that fast. Talking with Sergei and Yuri was fun, though. They have a little side project with these RCs to see what happens. They didn't bring refractors because they were afraid they'd just go away with a massive sheaf of orders (Very interesting discussion with Roland on that score).

That's amazing speed for an RC. The OTA struts are titanium for stiffness at low weight, though I would like folks to note that keeps the CTE down as well.

Their attitude is really cool- they'll do good work; it'll work out the way it works out, and they'll do something new from there.

Yes- the "Little One."

It was newer, and the petals for the primary mirror cover were a bit stiff, so I didn't get to see it opened up. The secondary is fairly large, as one would guess from the fast f/#.

The petals on the larger scope were milled for weight on the interior side- it wasn't made with plain 1/4" plate.

Center of the expo, from the left wall, facing right. Left is ES, followed by Vixen; AstroTrac is to the left of Vixen, followed by Kielder Observatory, then Kitt Peak. Right is Planewave, followed by DSP. Starizona on the far wall. Relative planet size display visible left background. Left extreme foreground (you can see the corner of the display, but that's it) was Apogee.

We overheard one of the solar telescope guys saying that he had over $40,000 invested in his outfit. I'm not sure which scope was his.

I turned to my wife and said "See, I don't spend so much on my astro gear after all." That got me a sour look.

Whenever my wife and I discuss me buying a new scope, we think back 15 years when I used to buy and sell airplanes.

Astronomy is relatively inexpensive and there is very little annual maintenance required for a telescope and mount.

I took the widefields first thing Saturday morning, before the crowds filed in. IIRC before 9am. Really should have shot an entire set, but it was my first astro expo, and I was like a kid in a candy store.

I'll be more disciplined next year - promise.

I might ask Alan for early access on day one - it would only take half an hour or so to shoot a full set of widefields and all the individual booths.

I've got the Vendor guide, but it's sorted alphabetically, not by booth number - and many of the vendors had more than one booth. Trying to figure out who was where is turning out to be a pain in the rear. I'll dig further if I get some time.

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/

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.

Thanks for the pics Joe, and others!! I'll get around to posting a few as I empty off some memory cards. I made a cameo in the one shot, thank you for photoshopping my tongue back in my mouth as I walked by the CDK17:-D

I happen to have a copy of the program with the booth numbers if anyone's still interested. I will try to post it here. If not - get me an email address via PM and I will shoot it over to anyone who's curious.

Great show and thanks for all the pics Joe!

Thanks to all for taking/posting the pictures. I saw the Meade booth picture and no LX80 or LX800 scopes/mounts visible. I guess that is no surprise.

There was an LX800. It's big.

Sorry. Got lost in all the other pics...



Rich is correct - the thing's huge.

The LX80 was also there at the other end of the booth from the LX800. The boxy mount head of the LX80 made it look larger than I expected.

Did the Meade folks comment on how things are going regarding correcting/fixing the mount tracking errors the first versions have..and have they returned scopes to customers who had to send them back in?
