Hello Astro-Nuts,

 

As many of you know, we’ve been gradually growing our team to meet the high demand for our products.  We’d like to introduce you to our two newest Astro-Folks, as of this week:

 

Eric is part of our production team.  He’s working closely with Don and Vic in Finishing, and with Dave, our mount assembly master.  Eric has been AP-adjacent for many years – he’s George’s son – and is already jumping in with both feet.

 

Amber has joined our office team.  She’s quickly learning the myriad duties Daleen and Paige juggle every day and coordinating with our Shipping/Receiving guru, Amanda.  Many of you will speak with or hear from Amber when calling or emailing the office. 

 

Please join us in welcoming Amber and Eric to the Astro-Folks!

We can thank A-P for the classic looking equipment.  Elegant lines and beautiful machining.  Often imitated but never duplicated.

Chris,

 

It’s nice to see pics of folks with their equipment. I hope more of you will share your whether your scope or mount are in an observatory or went out to a star party this summer.

When imaging through the Stowaway, yes, the 130 is the guidescope.  :-')
