What is the most luminous star in our sector of the Milky Way galaxy? It has well over 100 times the mass and is about 4 million times brighter than our own sun. This star is so heavy that it is highly unstable, and is in fact commonly known as "The Doomed Star” because it is expected to go nova in as little as 100,000 years. So what is the name of this star? Find the answer to this question later on this page...

You have only a few more days to take advantage of our offer of free shipping to anywhere in the United States. So, now’s a good time to replace those plastic knobs with our beautiful anodized aluminum or brass knobs. Not only will they make it much easier to find and observe all those galaxies, planets, and stars you’ve always wanted to see, but you might find yourself doing as one satisfied customer recently wrote: “I find myself racking the scope slightly out of focus before handing the eyepiece over to my observing buddies just so they will have to grab onto the knobs.”

Our bright, shiny knobs look great; maybe not as great as Eta Carinae which can only be seen in the southern hemisphere, but close. Please check out our website and send your order in today. You’ll be very pleased you did.

Clear Skies,
