Astro 27 - Field Astronomy at Pinnacles National Park

Oct 17-19, 2014

We had partly clear skies on Friday night, and beautiful clean skies on Saturday night. Friday, Kirk Bender joined with his 12" scope, and Saturday JP joined Kirk, bringing the monster 25" Dob. We had some great moments at the telescopes. Thanks again to Kirk for his awesome photography, on his Flickr page. and more, on Lytro.

During the day, once again I did some good training runs - the High Peaks trail plus the trail to the top of North Chalone Peak, on Saturday, and on Sunday I ran to the Balconies Caves, around the top of the Balconies, and back to the parking lot. A total of 24 miles for the weekend.
