What you'll do

We will go in car until Sierra Nevada where will start the observation. The evening would begin with a little history of the universe followed by a stellar orientation and mythology. . We would continue with instrumentation for the visualization of objects in the sky (how objects are searched with a telescope, what elements make it up, etc). Then we would go to observe through the telescope, both the moon planet if there were objects from deep space such as galaxies and nebulae. Finally, I would connect the camera to the telescope and we would see.

Where you'll be

The observations will be at least 2 people. We will move to Sierra Nevada about 20 minutes by car, where there will be picnic. In another case we can go up to an observation site with less light pollution and a cleaner sky and we would take 10 more minutes.
