Letter from the Editor

Greetings Eyepiece Readers,

It is with a heavy heart that I have had to resign my job as Editor-in-Chief of Eyepiece. It has been a privilege to oversee the voice of the Amateur Astronomers Association. In the course of my work on Eyepiece, I have had the opportunity to meet many AAA members while reviewing submissions and interacting with authors, and this has greatly enriched my AAA experience. What a bonus! It was enjoyable and gratifying to lead the Eyepiece committee whose members gave me important guidance on how to improve our publication.

Eyepiece has the responsibility of representing AAA’s many activities which include our sidewalk observing, Starfest, astrophotography as happens with our remote telescope, AAA’s soon-to-be established observatory, reaching out to the New York Community, the telescope loan program, new findings in the science of astronomy, and the excellent and varied classes and lectures. My experience with Eyepiece has given me ideas for my course on astronomy for high school students. I am confident that the new Editor-in-Chief, once found, will experience the astronomic enrichment and pleasure which I have had the opportunity to enjoy.

With much love and gratitude,
George Roush
