It was a huge success. There were more than 70 people ranging from complete novices to seasoned amateur observers with a very light dusting of professional astronomers just to balance things out.
I am going to let the photographic record speak for a really wonderful event.
There were lots of telescopes – 35 all told – of all shapes, sizes and configurations and many more people to go with them.
I almost forgot! There were also stars, lots of them, which is why we go to Leeuwenboschfontein in the first place, isn’t it?
So, that’s it until the 17th SSP in September 2019, also at Leeuwenboschfontein.
