Field Trip to the BSU Observatory

Written by Hockomock Joe on . Posted in Uncategorized

Once again Ron comes through with a planned evening at the Bridgewater State University Observatory! About ten members took him up on the offer to shoot for the stars and beyond! As in the past several students were on hand to assist in setting up the equipment and match our cameras to the proper adaptor. There were two telescopes on the Park Avenue side and one on the parking lot side. An added bonus was the opportunity to attach our cameras to the “Big Kahuna!” I thought the actual telescope would be much larger. I brought along my Fuji to get candid shots of those who attended but I was unable to use the equipment as there was no adaptor for Fuji. Oh well, it wasn’t meant to be. . .
