You may have noticed that I’ve been a little off on posting blogs lately. This has been an incredibly busy time, with a number of projects in midstream and several other big things cropping up for Astronomy magazine’s future. Just absolutely nonstop. But all good.

Tomorrow, Senior Editor Michael Bakich and I will be traveling to Los Angeles to participate in and help to emcee Celestron Perspective, a first-ever conference being put on by the telescope manufacturer. This two-day event begins Wednesday and will focus on astroimaging with Celestron telescopes. It will consist of about 100 imagers, Celestron dealers, and astronomy enthusiasts who have been invited to attend this unique meeting.

Bakich and I will speak about Comet ISON and emcee the awards dinner on Thursday night.

The whole event is taking place at the Portofino Hotel and Yacht Club in Redondo Beach.

It’s the first of its type as far as astronomy meetings go, and we hope to bring you some exciting coverage of the event during and afterward.

Stay tuned.
