Hmmmm, still on the fence with this design. It kind of looks like it should read "All of your scope are belong to us" beneath the logo.

I couldn't have said it better.

Next production run, Mike should ask for submissions from graphics designers (there have to be a few on CN) and then pick one from among that group of submissions.

This one isn't that bad, really (looks a little like a Shuttle Mission patch), but neither I nor any of my friends to whom I emailed the picture would buy one (aimed a little too young, I think, though I'd buy one for a grandchild). Sorry I didn't like it, because CN needs all the promotion it can get among amateurs.

Good timing for a reprint, though. My old ones are getting quite "long in the tooth".

People are always asking, how do we donate to CN, how can we support CN, this is a way. The $20 pays for the shirt and shipping and leaves a little to help pay for the server cost to keep CN running. I guess you can think of the shirt as a free gift for your donation of $20 if you wish.



Mike,
How would we go about paying you for one and you NOT sending the T-shirt to us, but using it as a free door prize in your new store?

I don't care for the design.

I do like the idea of not being sent one!

I would have thought a mission patch would have been the way to go since the space race is probably a major catalyst for the majority of the members interest in astronomy.

Anyway, the design came from a t-shirt I was wearing and the fact I was working on a paper about Georg Lucas. I went into the designer's office wearing the below and said I wanted a combination of that and the Rebel Alliance/Jedi symbol. They came back with the patch. The current CN font couldn't be manipulated, so I made a call. We have sold almost 50 in a half a day so I guess some people like it. lol

We have already had internal discussions about a t-shirt contest where members design a t-shirt, then the body votes on the top three, and we pick the winner. Sell them as a limited edition shirt once a year in November. We have a few other CN centric ideas to help with the cost of the servers.

Hi Mike, do you know if they are 100% cotton?

They are not. They are a vintage heathered T-shirt so they are a cotton/poly blend. We might do a standard t-shirt next, but I am a sucker for a t-shirt that looks old and feels worn in.

Thanks for the quick answer, Mike! The "not 100% cotton" isn't a deal-breaker anyway, but I was just curious. BTW, just ordered one!
