Stellarvue is more than a telescope company. We are a community, a Stellar-family, brought together by a deep love for the night sky.
Our Stellar-family has meetups throughout the year including educational programs, trade shows, and dark sky star parties.
STELLARVUE 2019 SCHEDULE OF COMING EVENTS
2019 Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF). Tentative dates, April 6 & 7. (Dates to be confirmed late 2018. We will post confirmed dates when available, stay tuned.)
Stellarvue's Annual Dark Sky Star Party (DSSP), July 4-7, 2019. DSSP is a benefit of ownership for people who observe and image with Stellarvue telescopes. It is a private event we sponsor specifically for our customers. In order to maintain a comfortable event we always limit attendance to a total of 50 people. We fill positions on a first, come, first served basis, and hold onto some spaces for new Stellarvue telescope owners. Click Here for more information.
STELLARVUE 2018 SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
Stellarvue sponsors Lassen Dark Sky Festival, August 3-4, 2018
Stellarvue is proud to be an official sponsor of Lassen’s Dark Sky Festival. Blue skies and dark nights give visitors great views at Lassen National Park. While the smoke from several fires reduces visibility somewhat, Lassen’s elevation and status as a dark sky place makes this the place to be. Vic Maris will show hundreds of visitors the planets and star clusters through a Stellarvue SV80-Access telescope. Vic also presents his Majesty of the Night Sky program at the Loomis Visitor Center.
Stellarvue Dark Sky Star Party (DSSP):
Thursday-Sunday June 14-17
We just returned from this year's big party, click here to see some of what happened on our 2018 DSSP PAGE.
Stellarvue reserves the Likely Place RV Park during the most favorable new moon weekend of the year, and caters the dinners. This facility has full hookups, a telescope field with power, an 18-hole golf course and a cafe (camp without the cooking!).
We also present numerous educational programs during the event. Attendance is limited to Stellarvue owners who sign up in time. This program is a benefit of ownership for Stellarvue Telescope owners. See last year's DSSP on our 2017 DSSP PAGE.
We attended the 2018 NEAF conference and proudly introduced our Optimus 13.5 mm 100 degree eyepiece. We developed this eyepiece to fill void between 9 and 20 mm offerings. This is an excellent addition, allowing for incredible deep sky views. We always value the face to face interaction we get while attending NEAF. If you ever plan to attend NEAF, plan to spend the entire weekend in Suffern, New York. For more information visit their website.
