NEAF 2015

Posted by Vic Maris on

On April 18 & 19 Stellarvue will be exhibiting at the Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF) in Suffern, NY. We are co-hosting the OPT/Stellarvue theater this year at NEAF with excellent guest speakers. As usual, we will be selling some great certified pre-owned telescopes at deep discounts.  We plan to introduce our new SVS130 130 mm f-5 Apo Sextuplet! It uses the temperature compensating OPTEC 3" focuser. We will take pre-orders at NEAF and plan to start delivering production units of this instrument this summer! http://www.rocklandastronomy.com/neaf.html

SV130EDT - Only two left!

While waiting for more FPL53 glass, we decided to make the last of our 130EDT lenses into telescopes.
