Phost-TMSP 2009 [Jul. 27th, 2009|11:37 am]

[Current Mood |cheerfulcheerful]



Best Parts: Learning new constellations Delphi and Scorpio. Seeing a Globular Cluster by climbing a ladder and seeing it through a 30" Dob telescope. Seeing what looked like a family of tiny Emu/Turkeys and also an adorable deer cross the dirt road on the way up, plus all of the cute chipmunks!

Worst Part: Didn't bring a towel, so 3 days with no shower and only a vault toilet? No running water? Also, leaving early due to overcast skies the last day. Pain spike also sucks, but was worth it. What an amazing place! I will be back.

Table Mountain Star Party. Basically a gathering of amatuer astronomers that enjoy sharing their hobby and their equipment with others.
