I'm back from South Africa, and I have a lot of material to post over the next several months. I'll start off with this highlight pic, though. This is a long-exposure from Kokerboomkloof in Richtersveld National Park. We camped there the nights of September 4 and 5. The dark sky was so impressive! It was lovely to see the milkyway in all its glory, plus the Magellanic clouds, Omega Centauri, and numerous other Messier objects visible to the naked eye.
