Mike's Pilgrimage to The Great California Telescopes

Tripod Camera Shots at 8750ft Elevation
All the shots are of the Sagittarius Star Cloud Area at Tulomme Meadows in Yosemite National Park

Mount Palomar
at 4:45pm it closed at 4:30pm

For an amateur astronomer, this is "SACRED GROUND", to be able to see such a piece of ASTRONOMY HISTORY. To walk in the observartory and know the great astronomers that have used this facility. It made me feel very humble! Anyone interested in Palomar Observatory should read the books "First Light" and "The Perfect Machine" both excellent!
