I brought my Z12 to this one, because I left directly from the outreach to have an extended stay at the HAS dark site! It was paradise.

Event Date: Friday, 4/21/2017
Name of Event/Service: Shadydale Lock-In
Type of Service: Public Outreach
# of Hours: 2
Description of Service Performed: I set up my Z12 in the parking lot of the school alongside 6 scopes brought by others. A combination of the severe light pollution, partial cloud cover, and being set up directly underneath bright streetlights meant that the only viable targets to us were the Orion Nebula and Jupiter, and from my point of view the Orion Nebula was behind the glare of a streetlight, so I only showed the kids Jupiter.
Comments: We were set up for a long time before the kids came outside, and they weren’t outside for as long as hoped, but it was fun nonetheless!
