20 March 2011 Event: Company Seven Supporting NASA Sun-Earth Day educational activity.
This year's theme was be 'Ancient Mysteries-Future Discoveries', opening the door to a much deeper understanding of our Sun and its impact on our Earth across the ages.
We employed a selection of Tele Vue Panoptic, Tele Vue Nagler, Tele Vue Radian, and a matched pair of Carl Zeiss Abbe Orthoscopic series eyepiece sets and filters.
While this was a good "practice run" for us, the seeing conditions were marginal with notable humidity and sky glow.
This year's theme is "Ancient Observatories Timeless Knowledge".
