Expedition to Roque De Los Muchachos at La Palma in 2008

Old stuffPosted by Koen Miskotte Mon, January 31, 2011 07:42:49

In the period July 23 to August 1, 2008 I stayed with four friends at the observatory Roque de Los Muchachos (http://www.iac.es/eno.php?op1=2&lang=en ) on La Palma. There we observed the southern Delta Aquariids, a meteor shower. A photo report can be found here: http://www.koenmiskotte.nl/meteors/Jalbum%20meteoren/2008%20La%20Palma/
A Dutch written report can be found here: http://www.koenmiskotte.nl/meteors/storys/perseids_2008.htm

Picture: the Milky way on La Palma. The moon was already above the horizon, but also many stars were visible. Camera: Canon EOS 40D with a Sigma 4.5 mm F/2.8 EX DC Circulair fish eye lens. Mount: Vixen Photoguider type II.
