UVIC Observatory

Nic invited us to take a look at the telescope at the University of Victoria Observatory. Nic is our daughter Emma's boyfriend, and you can tell he is passionate about his occupation as an astronomy student at UVIC. It was a partly cloudy evening but Nic managed to dial the telescope in on M13 seen in the photo above. He showed me the Vixen telescope and handed me a Canon adaptor so that I could hook up my camera. Pretty cool stuff. By far the largest lens I have hooked my camera up to. Henrik, please take note :) Thanks Nic for giving us this opportunity.
