New Point Grey Astro-specific website new
      #5294841 - 06/29/12 12:56 PM

Point Grey has created a new Astrophotography specific webpage: Point Grey Astrophotography Cameras

Point Grey makes a wide range of machine vision cameras. Many of them are great cameras for astrophotography, but many of them are not . We've created this site in an effort to clarify our products for the astrophotography community. We posted information about what we feel are our best cameras for planetary, lunar, solar, and even possibly deep sky photography.

We are also posting reviews and articles about using Point Grey cameras for astrophotography. If anyone has written or is writing relevant articles or reviews on any of our cameras, we'd love to hear about it!

Thanks,
Don

Nice site - but is sure is hard to find out where your physical location is.
I live on Point Grey, Vancouver, at UBC, so I thought you might be nearby.

I'm pleased to find (eventually!) that you aren't too far away, in Richmond, BC, Canada.

Point Grey Research (now usually abbreviated to just "Point Grey") did start on Point Grey! We were a group of 5 students/staff in the computer science dept of University of British Columbia. However, we soon discovered how hard it is to get office space in UBC - so we moved after about 6 months to Broadway & Burrard, and then a few years later to Marpole, and then a few years later right out of Vancouver to Steveston highway in Richmond. We are getting farther and farther away from Point Grey, but only a local would know what/where Point Grey is anyway so we can get away with it
