The Weekly Space Hangout is a show that discusses science and technology news. They focus on the science and regularly have high profile scientists and experts. It’s all about Science and Space Exploration News. I appeared on the latest episode to talk about amateur astronomy, telescopes and my book (See it With a Small telescope). It was fun! And I am very grateful that they had me on the show. You can watch the episode right here.
My telescope book is published and getting wonderful 5 star reviews on amazon. I am proud of this and a bit humbled by it. It was a wonderful project and it is catching on. I just did a radio interview with the famous Dr. Sky. He is a radio and television personality who bring the wonders of the sky to the people. He has interviewed a stunning array of brilliant
and famous people on his show and he has appeared on many other shows including
a weekly installment on Coast to Coast with George Noory. Dr. Sky is the premiere Ambassador
between the wonders of the universe and the people.

Telescopes, and astronomy hold an allure. There is an accompanying sense of exploration and discovery that comes with using a telescope. So, they are often featured on science websites. Rightfully so. And one prominent science website has picked up my book and written an article about it and about the wonders of the night sky. You can read the article on their website here.
I love the headline!

It was a great feeling to pick up my local Sunday Newspaper and see a great looking two-page article about my new telescope book. I was tickled pink. And they did such a great job with the design and layout. Wow, More stuff coming including presentations and book signings. I will keep you posted.
I am Proud to announce that my latest book is now available for pre-sale on Amazon. This has been a wonderful project for me. It all came out of my love for astronomy and telescopes. My desire is that this book helps other people also discover the joy to be had with a small telescope.

Wow, this is quite a find. A friend lucked into a long term loan of a telescope. It is a 12.5 inch Meade Dobsonian. It is probably around ten years old and it has stood vertical with no cover for quite a while so the mirror needs work. We are going to have a lot of fun with this enormous light bucket.
The first order of work was a bit of cosmetic cleaning. Secondly we removed that mirror and tried to clean it. But that is a no-go. So…. it looks like we are going to have to send this thing out to get re-mirrored. Oh well!
The mirror is in pretty bad shape:
We tried cleaning it but the contamination has eaten through the aluminum coating. Drats! WEll, we technically still can use it. It just won’t be at maximum efficiency. I will keep you posted on this project!
