Our president, Mike Simmons represented Astronomers Without Borders at NEAF this year held in New York. He manned our booth and spread the word about our international outreach. Here's his report:

"The Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF), was held in northern New York, and was the highlight of the year for the astronomy industry. The big companies display their wares alongside small vendors that serve every niche in the hobby of astronomy. AWB was there once again with a booth and the AWB OneSky telescope on display, and more, thanks to Planewave Instruments who is generously shipping materials and equipment for AWB to the shows we both attend. The booth was managed again this year by volunteer Joan Chamberlin and feedback was great. For vendors, magazines, organizations, and especially amateur astronomers looking for bargains and new gear, this quiet area of New York state was once again the center of the universe for a weekend."
