NEAF 2017 (April 8)

Location:  Rockland Community College, Suffern, NY, USA

Date Time:  April 8, 2017 0900-1830 hrs Local Time.

Weather:  Partly cloudy, windy, 13C.


  • Very nice day for the 'Forum'.  Lots of attendees and lots of great booths set up from everything from telescopes, to telescope accessories, to software for analyzing the light spectrum of stars.

  • One of the booths had Tom Field, who was giving a talk about a filter you can affix to a Canon DSLR camera lens to allow for light spectrum analysis.  The 'Star Analyser' costs $200 US and for more info check out his website at
  • Here are some images of some of the booths.  Very rare to find so much astronomy related products in one place at a time.  Even the biggest astronomy stores (which are only located in big centers like Toronto and Montreal) dont have this kind of selection...or anywhere near this kind of selection.

A Planewave telescope, in my opinion, one of the most impressive telescopes present at the Conference.  This one was listed at $22,000 US!

  • More to follow...
