We were saddened to learn last week of the passing of a veteran eclipse chaser and friend of Tele Vue Optics: Dr. Jay M. Pasachoff, Williams College Field Memorial Professor of Astronomy and director of the Hopkins Observatory in Massachusetts. He was 79 years old. Over the years, he acquired many of our small, airline-portable refractors for his expeditions to solar eclipses around the world. Dr. Pasachoff kindly allowed us to use the resulting images on our website and blog.
