The exception was we CAMPED AT THE MOUNTAIN.
& it was a fun filled adventure with for 18 passengers onboard 6 SUVsss.
The idea behind this camping site was to give test run to a 24 INCH Diameter Telescope.
This telescope is the largest dia telescope owned by a private person MR. NAVEED MERCHANT.
Thanks Mr. Merchant for giving us the opportunity to be the 1st to have a view of galaxies from this superb piece of glass.
The camping site is a protected area in National Park, so we took permission from Game Warden who was very cooperative & we were allowed to Camp there.
