Charles Howard Glatter, "Howie Glatter" (b.1946) was a compassionate, charismatic and very talented New York-based entrepreneur who developed and manufactured some of astronomy's most sought after state-of-the art collimation tools. He was also an inventor of several other innovative astronomy products that advanced amateur astronomy. He was someone that was always greeted with smiles and intellectual curiosity by others and will be missed by many.
The submission to the IAU will take about 90 days to become official.
Brianfromsyracuse and Dave Cotterell came up with the idea, and Bob Schilling, Don Pensack, Roger Greenwood and Jeff Norwood wrote the citation.
This is such great news!!
