Apollo 11, 50th anniversary

Posted by Steve Rowe on

Apollo 11 view from the moon

The world watched in awe 50 years ago when Neil Armstrong descended from the Apollo 11 lunar lander to be the first human to step foot on the moon. Fast forward 50 years and today's technology is so advanced companies are launching convertibles into space as marketing stunts. 

Esco Optics began in the mid-1950s by providing optical components and telescope kits for astronomy enthusiasts. The space race ignited the world's passion for searching the stars, as was our passion to create more precise and more challenging optics. For Esco, there's no better way to celebrate the Apollo 11 achievement than to create a one-of-a-kind commemorative piece to proudly display in our office.
