From age of 10 my parents bought me my first telescope the passion began. At the age of 12 I design and build a 10 inch Newtonian Telescope. After completion I use it and took many picture with it. The as I entered High School I design and build one of the most complex telescopes in the country a 16 inch F4 F16 newtonian cassegrain. In 1993 I started Spectrum Thin Films we manufacture optical coatings for the Space program, NASA, and astronomical observatories throughout the world. Five years ago I aquired denkmeier Optical manufacturing state of the art Bino viewers And the passion continues.
