Looks like Orion has licensed Carina Software's SkyVoyager iPhone application for use in the Star Seeker. Screenshots from their website seem identical.

Great work again, TT. As an aside, the more I learn about Normand Fullum, the more I wonder how he does it all. The artistry of his Dobs' structures is legend, but less well-known is the superb performance of his mirrors.

RE: Pop Quiz - I'm guessing a Tele Vue MPT but I thought I read somewhere that the Naglers now used a NP127 for eyepiece testing instead? Of course everything I just typed could be wrong :)

Definitely a TV Multi-Purpose Telescope in the mystery photo. A 5in f/4 with an iris to allow it to be stopped down. The first TV scope I think. I used to own one a long time ago. -- Alan

Yes I agree the answer to the pop quiz is the Televue MPT 5" F/4. Too bad I missed that when I was there as I've never seen one in person.

Dave:

Both are listed on the NEAF website as featured speakers. According to this blog, Amy Mainzer didn't make it:

Alex was there, however, and was quite entertaining in the interview Tom did with him on the webcam. I missed his speaker talk, though, as I was busy doing the webcam thing.

Amazing. Once again CN ignored Stellarvue's presence at NEAF. I'm beginning to think this is deliberate.
