It's time to admit that being the new person just isn't pleasant. It's hard when you enter a new workplace, where your co-workers are in already-established groups, and it's hard for a new hobby as well. It can take a lot of courage for people to put themselves out there. We’ve seen it done, and we’ve done it ourselves.
But newcomers will be pleased to know that astronomy is a hobby that's incredibly welcoming, and clubs and societies do their best to recruit new members. Newbie/Open Nights, Family Nights, speaking events, star parties - even trips to the USA to see the eclipse this August (our local club has organised this, and we’re Australian. It’s a pretty long way to go!).Continue reading →
So you’ve just booked tickets to one of the biggest astronomy events of the year - but now what? If you’ve never been to a show like this before, it’s can be pretty daunting, especially for beginner astronomers just getting into the game. We know exactly how you feel, and we’ve been through the same thing! So we’re here to help you enjoy (and survive!) NEAF weekend.Continue reading →
We loved attending our first show so much, we couldn’t resist coming back!
We’ll be displaying our Nexus DSC and Nexus-II - both of which can be bought from Woodland Hills Camera & Telescope next door to our booth.
What to know some of the cool things you can see and do at our booth? They include:
Additionally, you can check out our Nexus DSC installed on scopes and mounts at the following stands:
We’d love for you to stop by and talk with us, as we love meeting our customers from around the world.
We've also entered a Nexus DSC and Nexus-II into the NEAF raffle prize, so be sure to buy tickets for the chance to win!

We're a company that primarily makes digital setting circles - but we've never really offered a clear explanation about what they are (unless you count a short explanation on our brochures). This has been a mistake on our part, considering that digital setting circles can be an astronomer's most-used accessories and have benefited anyone who's ever used them.
We reckon that it's about time we sat down and wrote about the products we make and sell. Below you'll find explanations about DSCs and a little history lesson about them.Continue reading →
We attended NEAF 2016 in April. We definitely know how late this blog post is - it's been over 6 months since our trip to the States. It's just that we never got around to writing about it. But it's time we sat down for a bit and told you our story. It's a pretty interesting one. We're also posting this to give our readers a good idea of what the biggest astronomy show in the US is like and whether it's worth going (it is!).
