This is an astronomy based podcast/talk show that is devoted to stargazing tips, tricks and astronomical equipment. Do you have questions about how to get into astronomy? Do you have a favorite eyepiece that you want to discuss? What about an observing report that you can't wait to share? Are you shopping for a new telescope, and don't know where to start? Do you want to rant or rave about a specific telescope or astronomical accessory? Do you enjoy stargazing and do you take your telescope out every clear night? Well, At The Eyepiece is dedicated to you. We don’t focus on the science of astronomy, frankly there are plenty of shows/podcasts out there to do that. The focus of At The Eyepiece is the visual observer, those people that enjoy taking their telescopes under the stars, and those people wishing to join our ranks. After all, what really matters to a backyard stargazer is what’s At The Eyepiece.
