2014 Autumn Urban StarFest


Huge crowd in Central Park’s Sheep Meadow for the annual Autumn Urban Starfest. Clouds did not cooperate and got in the way. But a fun time was had by all. Al Nagler of Tele Vue spoke and donated an eyepiece. Mike Dzurny of Meade Telescopes donated a refractor and talked about how to buy a telescope. As we packed up after 10 p.m., the skies began to clear!
