Welcome to the At The Eyepiece Show! This is an astronomy based podcast that is devoted to discussing astronomical equipment, visual and electronically assisted observing, stargazing tips, observing reports and equipment reviews. We don't focus on the science of astronomy, there are plenty of shows out there to do that. The focus of At The Eyepiece Show are the backyard stargazers that enjoy taking their telescopes out under the stars, and those individuals wishing to join our ranks. After all, what matters to stargazers is what’s At The Eyepiece.
