ASTRONOMY2017 Stargazing : Photos of the Event

Post by rlow »

Mod's Comment : Hi Guys. Thanks to rlow (Richard Low) for being the first and fastest to upload the photos. I have moved the photo posts to a new topic specially for the event photos. Do post your photos here!

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are some photos from last night (18 Feb 2017) stargazing at Marina Bay Sands. Sorry if I may had inadvertedly missed out anyone or scope from these photos.

22-inch Ultra-Compact Travel Dob, designed by rlow for airline travel. One lady ask "...where to view the stars? Is it I sit inside (on primary mirror cover) and look up...?"

Gavin & his fabulous HIGH-tech 12.5 inch Obsession. In comparison, the 22 inch dob is a "low"-tech design.

Richard the first (Aircon-vent) with his 4 inch maksutov. I call him "Richard the first" because he always call me "Richard II" or "R2". Notice Weixing in the background aiming his bazooka.

Zhong Yang with his 3-D printed 150mm dob. Very impressively-cute toy-like scope.

A sniper scope camouflaged in stealth mode. The crowd evidently seemed to have not noticed it.
