Editor's Semi-Dark Matter


Orion, the telescope company that offers SJAA members a discount, was recently sold to Imaginova. Early indications are that there will not be an immediately noticeable change in the Orion product line or its retail store in Cupertino.

Meade recently introduced a Richey-Chretien line of scopes. Considering these scopes include the mount, the price point for RC scopes is one-third of what it was before this announcement. As this is written, the new scopes are not being shipped but reservations are being taken at Meade dealerships.

March is the 350th anniversary of the discovery of Titan by Christian Huygens. Sorry it took so long to get to know 'ya but we seem to be a shy species.
