  • A Great Night Under the Stars

    Back in the real world, and at my other job, System Overlord of SBO (Sommers-Bausch Observatory, CU Boulder), we purchased two Paramount Tarus 500 mounts with Planewave 20" CDK Telescopes this winter.

  • The Whole Story... Minus the Results

  • Trial Night and Some Photos

    Well tonight was a success and a failure. My partner and I were able to get setup and tracking on the sky at our chosen site, but then the clouds rolled in and ruined everything. Luckily last night was only the practice run. Hopefully tonight is much clearer. We did chance onto a wonderful site. There...

  • First Day in South Africa

    Well today I arrived in South Africa. Most of today was spent working on logistics, picking up cars, checking into hotels, and picking up telescopes. The best part was getting to practice setting up the telescopes. We had about 10 big portable scopes in a field and helped each other set them up and get...
