Stellafane is a convention (I think the original) of telescope geeks who build their own scopes. There will be viewing from a high elevation point in Vermont with good dark skies; lens grinding demonstrations; at least one talk about the Curiosity rover, I'm sure; gear swaps; and just lots of opportunities to hang out and talk with lots of folks who know where more about the night sky than I do.
Turns out I won't be going this year because a friend has a show opening Off Off Broadway, and I'm going to NYC to see his show and celebrate with him, and you're not allowed to come to Stellafane late 'cause nobody wants your headlights ruining their dark skies! It's a good problem to have, and maybe I'll get to Stellafane next year.
