Northwest Suburban Astronomers (NSA) member Jerry Chern and his son, Adam, attended Astrofest in 1999 to help Adam choose an appropriate optical system for his first serious telescope. The Astrofest brought together astronomy enthusiasts and amateur telescope makers from a wide area and facilitated the sharing of information, techniques, and experience. The result of their visit was the acquisition of what turned out to be, with some modifications by Jerry, a very effective and optically excellent 8-inch telescope. At our June meeting, Jerry will present footage from his visit to Astrofest, featuring a wide array of telescopes as well as some faces familiar to the local amateur astronomy community. Additionally, Jerry will show some total eclipse videos as we continue to prepare for the August 21st solar eclipse.
