Some 60 people will attend an event next month in Los Angeles that is the first of its kind. Telescope manufacturer Celestron will put on an event called Perspective in which they host an invitation-only audience of telescope dealers and astroimagers at a fancy oceanfront hotel in Redondo Beach. The two-day conference, slated for June 19 and 20, will include talks and seminars by well-known astrophotographers including John Davis, Christopher Go, and Warren Keller.
The event also will feature workshops by telescope and imaging experts, a Celestron factory tour, hands-on demonstrations, new product announcements, special awards, and camaraderie.
Not only will Michael and I be attending, but we’ve also been asked to emcee the awards dinner on the final evening. So I can only warn you that we’ll be invoking the spirits of George Carlin and Rodney Dangerfield.
It should be a really fun night and a fun event, and I’ll keep you posted about further plans as I hear of them.
