We had a wonderful meeting in Kuwait on the 14th of December where I got to meet some avid astronomers. I was thoroughly impressed by how knowledgeable these gentlemen were. I was sitting there watching them discussing innovations they are working on and products they are developing and I was humbled by my lack of knowledge and expertise in front of these fine examples of Arab Astronomers.
Present during this gathering were Mr. Hamed Al-Hindi, Mr. Jasem Al-Mutlaq and Mr. Mohamed Al-Obaidi. You may be familiar with Mr. Jasem as the the developer of the highly successful Stellarmate device and the main developer behind the open source Ekos – INDI project.
I look forward to meeting other astronomers in other countries.
