What’s AVT-Astro and who is the guy in the picture?

Hi! My name is Vlad. I have been into astronomy since I was about 12 years old when I got my first scope; a Tasco 60mm refractor(saved for working as a paperboy). Over the years I have had the privilege in owning over 100 telescope and more accessories then one can count. One thing that I have come to realize is that while I love to observe the wonders of the night sky, I love trying out the next piece of astro-gear even more! This is the inspiration for AVT-Astro.
