Ring of Fire 2020 Eclipse

Flight Director

Not only is the summer solstice occurring, but we'll also be undergoing the new moon solar eclipse on June 21 at exactly 12:47 a.m. ET. It won't be a total eclipse, though: There will still be some surface area of the sun peaking out from behind the moon, creating a stunning "ring of fire" effect. This event is even more important because it happens the same day as the summer solstice and the day the sun enters Cancer. Creating a turning point in human history, poised to accelerate social change.

On Saturday, May 30, 2020, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the company’s Crew Dragon spacecraft launched on NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2 mission to the International Space Station and made its way into the history books. The Demo-2 mission is the first launch with astronauts of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket to the International Space Station as part of the agency’s Commercial Crew Program. The test flight serves as an end-to-end demonstration of SpaceX’s crew transportation system. Behnken and Hurley launched at 3:22 p.m. EDT on Saturday, May 30, from Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center. A new era of human spaceflight is set to begin as American astronauts once again launch on an American rocket from American soil to low-Earth orbit for the first time since the conclusion of the Space Shuttle Program in 2011.

Seven Principals of Biocentrism

  1. what we perceive as reality, is a product of our consciousness.  
  2. our external and internal perceptions are inextricably intertwined (different sides of the same coin that cannot be separated). 
  3. the behavior of sub atomic particles (all particles and objects) is inextricably linked to the presence of a conscious observer.  without a conscious observer, they (at best) exist in an undetermined state of probability waves
  4. without consciousness, matter dwells in an undetermined state of probability.  any universe preceding consciousness, only existed in a probability state
  5. the very structure of the universe is explainable only through biocentrism.  The Universe is finely tuned to support an observer, which makes sense because  life creates the universe, not the other way around.  it is simply the complete spacial temporal logic of the self. 
  6. time does not have a real existence outside of animal sense perception.  it is the process by which we perceive changes in the universe.  
  7. space, like time, is not an object or thing.  space is another form of our animal understanding.  and does not have an independent reality. we carry space and time around with us like turtles with shells.  there is no absolute self existing matrix in which physical events occur independent of life

FEATURED TELESCOPE

SVX070T-25SV LIMITED EDITION

SVX070T-25SV Limited Edition. This special edition is only available direct from the Stellarvue website. Once these telescopes are sold out they may not make any more. It will depend on how long each one takes to perfect and that will determine if Stellarvue makes any more.  Offered direct from the maker until they run out of existing glass.  

The latest and best 70 mm telescope which is known for capturing wide field images of deep space objects. It features an extremely high Strehl objective hand figured in our optical shop in Auburn California. When you purchase this telescope you will receive a “real” Zygo interferometric test report taken at full aperture of the actual lens you receive. The test will be conducted on an actual 6″ Zygo Phase-Shifting Laser Interferometer here in Auburn. 

Better star images, higher contrast and absolute visual perfection.  

GETTING STARTED

How to Buy your first Telescope

Selecting the right telescope can be a challenge for beginners. Here are some helpful guidelines to get you started in your new hobby. 

There are three main types of telescopes: 

  • 1. Those with lenses (Refractors)

  • 2. Those with mirrors (Reflectors)

  • 3. Those with a combination of elements that use lenses and mirrors (Catadioptric Telescopes)

Step-by-step guide for those new to the hobby

1. Start by learning the night sky. You can download inexpensive or free planetarium programs like Star Walk, Star Chart (iPhone/iPad), or Starlight on your portable device to show you in real time the sky above and help you learn the constellations. These programs are simple and fun to use as you scan the night sky. These programs will point out the locations of the planets and deep sky objects above you. 

2. Try binoculars. With your planetarium program you can now use binoculars or a wide-field telescope to get a closer look at objects like the moon, nebulae, and star clusters. Get out to a dark sky location. You will be amazed at how many stars are above and how awesome open clusters and the Milky Way appear in your binoculars. The advantage is that binoculars are readily available; the disadvantage is that you are limited to low power. 

3. Purchase a wide-field refractor with good optics, a stable mount, and tripod: Having learned the night sky and several constellations, you are now ready to get your first telescope. The advantage of a good wide-field telescope over binoculars is that you can select different eyepieces to boost the power and see much more. It is possible to make out the moons of Jupiter with a good pair of binoculars, but you will never see the planets’ surface features or the rings of Saturn. 

4. Which Stellarvue telescopes are recommended for beginners? The Stellarvue SVX80T-25SV is an 80mm f-6 apo triplet made using our deluxe 2.5″ dual speed, rack and pinion focuser, hand-figured in our own facility in Auburn, CA. This high-Strehl instrument is recommended for those not ready to jump too deep into our other SVX refractors. This version of our 80 mm apo triplet is designed primarily for visual use. This telescope can be used with our SFF3-80 flattener when ready to begin your imaging path.
