International Observe the Moon Night Observation Report
Last October 8, 2016,
some members of the Astronomical League of the
Philippines hosted the International Observe the Moon
Night (InOMN) at SM By the Bay. Members who were present
are President James Kevin Ty and his son Kendrick Cole
KC Ty; Treasurer Andrew Ian Chan, Secretary Christopher
Louie Lu and daughter Frances Lu; director Iah Serna and
Miguel Cajita and her mom Mel Cajita and 2 staffs of
Cutting Edge as well as guest Esmer de Leon.
James brought along a Celestron SkyMaster 20x80mm
binocular on sturdy tripod, Andrew with his Skywatcher
80ED refractor on Vixen GP mount ; Christopher with his
Celestron AstroMaster 80mm refractor on CG-2 mount;
Cutting Edge staff brought along an AstroMaster C114
Newtonian reflector on CG-2 mount
They started to setup after the SMBY Saturday fireworks
as they saw a very hazy Quarter Moon forcing itself to
come out of the thick high clouds. Unfortunately,
weather didn't cooperate that evening and also started
to drizzle a bit so they called it a night at around
9:30pm. They posed for a group shot before packing up
their equipment and calling it a night and had late
dinner at Razons before gong home late in the evening
