November 25, 2015 Observing for MOA at Mount John, Lake Tekapo I’m doing an observing run at Mount John, Lake Tekapo! Selfies with a DSLR aren’t easy. Me on Mt John with the MOA-II telescope in the background. The MOA-II telescope dome and Lake Tekapo The Mount John University Observatory from the South Lookout The MOA-II telescope and Orion, just before moonrise. Doesn’t stop the tourists. Yep. Got windy up there at times. Me, MOA and the moon. MOA in the moonlight. I’ve not been in Tekapo during the summer. The 1.8 metre Nishimura telescope. Me with beard. Bathing in the light of a million LEDs.
