A post on Facebook from explore scientific,,such a good story ,, I had to copy it to here.
Was photos of burnt out eye pieces on original post
Having visited and observed the stars around Paradise, California years ago I knew that many amateur astronomers lived in and around that area. Some of them purchased Explore Scientific optics as well. When the fires struck that area in November of last year, I could hardly believe the devastation.
For many of us we had friends and family who were affected by this tragedy, and today I am reminded again of how terrible it was (and still is for many, especially for those who lost more than property), when this letter and melted 82 Degree Series 24mm Eyepiece arrived at my desk.
It belongs to Paradise resident Mike Davis, who was kind enough to send it in with a letter. He wrote:
“ I must say that both my 82° 30 mm and 24 mm eyepieces were really outstanding. I had my friends over one night from the local city observatory; we looked through my backyard telescope using my two Explore Scientific eyepieces, and with their more expensive 30 mm and 24 mm eyepieces as a comparison. We could not see any difference in viewing quality... Impressive!”
Nothing can replace what Mike Davis lost in that terrible event, but under the no fault care program that we put in place several years ago we can replace the 24mm (and a 30mm 82 Deg eyepiece that was destroyed in the fire as well) with new ones so that Mike can get back under the stars and do what he loves to do. So, tomorrow new eyepieces will be on their way, and it makes me wonder how we can do more to enhance and protect our customer’s investment in our gear in the future...
