Last Saturday, Oceanside Photo & Telescope held week two of their amazing Southern California Astronomy Expo (SCAE). The event included a spectacular array of prizes put up by the many vendors attending the event. Proceeds from the raffle were donated to help support public outreach here at Palomar Observatory.
That's OPT's owner Craig Weatherwax at right shaking my hand after presenting the check for $4,000. Thank you OPT and thanks to the vendors who supported the event! We appreciate your generosity in supporting public outreach in astronomy.
