Mersing Trip (11th - 13th March)

This trip was held on the 11th March 2016 till 13th March 2016, a 3 days 2 night trip. The location was Mersing, Malaysia and most of the Astronomy Club's members were invited to go for this trip. We arrived at Mersing close to midnight and was around a 5 hour trip.

The objective if this trip is to observe the sun using a solar telescope during the day while observing the celestial objects during the night. Mersing was the ideal location as it has lower light pollution, which allows us to observe more celestial objects.

However, a difficulty was that there were many clouds when we were observing, making it very hard to observe and taking pictures.

The following are pictures captured during the trip.
