Hi Tom,
I only just noticed this thread - sorry

Couple of questions before I can consider what my suggestions would be: -

1] Is see that this is a poll - so is this just a simple count of how many times a product gets mentioned by responders?

2] I see responders submitting Explore Scientific 82° Series eyepieces, but weren't these released during the previous year? Or, does the actual year of release not matter?

A comment I have is that it would be useful to know why a product is being submitted as "Product of the year" by someone.

Regards,

skybsd

Another vote for Josh Bury's "Observer Pro" iPhone app.
It can revolutionize the way you plan both visual
observing and imaging.

I guess the Delos 10mm has to be taken off with that plastic baffle issue.

Any idea when the results might be posted? It's almost a month past the date when the 2010 poll results were presented.

Bart, sadly real life takes a priority. I'm sure it will be posted as quickly as possible.
