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 them pointing. Even here in Cape Town, the night sky is beautiful. Not with the number of stars or the Milky Way, simply that the sky is so different will all new stars and constellations. Anyway, it is late here, so time for some much needed sleep after 48 hours in transit.
