Sidewalk astronomy, public outreach

6th of April

We did some deep sky observations in road side, some local people came too. Introduction to constellations, bright stars, etc. Borg 45ED is used on a weak tripod, but that's the only viable way for me when going with two children.

8th of April

I brought along my SM40/BF10/Borg with a very light weight tripod with me during the trip to the northern part of China. When we did some exchange activities with the local schools, I showed the students the sun in H-alpha!

Solar activities were pretty low, but I saw some students are impressed.

At the same night, we went to have some night time observation, too.
