Now that's a telescope
This is an outdoor plastic dome to house your home telescope. It looked like a porta-John.
These are high tech, highly engineered mounts for your telescope. And they are not cheap.
They even had a demonstration on how to grind your own mirrors for a reflector telescope.
The show wasn't all geeky - there were a few laughs.
One booth had free meteorites - Yes, FREE... And one came home with me.
In the end, Steve picked his telescope to find new stars. Now, all he has to do is find the cash.
