In this Tele Vue blog installment, we travel to Kitt Peak to learn how a Tele Vue product is helping to “speckle” binary stars. While amateurs usually align and stack short exposures to create an image, professionals may use their short exposures to perform complex math for refining the orbits of close binary stars. We'll also learn what Tele Vue gear some members of the impressive-sounding Bundesdeutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Veränderliche Sterne group uses to monitor light curves of eclipsing binary stars. This week's blog also has a new Tele Vue product announcement!
