Re: NEAF

Every year I swear I'm going and it never happens. Would be quite a trip for me, probably 12 hours. But drivable at least. I'd have to go for the week as there is a few days before NEAF they have the Imagers forum which would be great.

Re: NEAF

I will say that this year it was very well attended - more so than what I have seen in the past 3 years or so. Maybe a resurgence in interest?
Anyway, here are a few pics of interest:

Re: NEAF

Very nice pics. The Quad rig is awesome. You can grab L R G and B all at the same time. But that would be a calibration nightmare. Separate Dark, Bias and Flats for each filter.

I did not stop in at Optec, but did get a good look at the Moonlight with built in rotator, now that was nice!

Re: NEAF

Yeah Ron sent me a video on that thing a couple of months ago. He has a pretty impressive work bench. Those guys are engineers for sure.
