Dark Skies

What an ominous title for a post eh? Well... not quite as ominous, but in actuality, geeky as all get out. Ahh well.. I guess acceptance is nigh! One of the parks about an hour out of town was declared a Dark Skies Preserve. Essentially designated to combat the encroaching light pollution that usually hits most major cities. The whole of the "Elk Island" park had the declaration ceremony today, and the local astronomy club (as well as several co-workers) headed out for a long weekend of camping fun and telescopes. One particularly enterprising co-worker has what I dubbed the "Chairscope" Maybe the "Steno-Scope" is more appropriate. He built a mirrored telescope from parts including a steno chair "hack" as his base. It would make MacGuyver proud.

Piccies after the jump.
