La Palma Diary - Day Eight

My final sunset on the volcano at La Palma, and this will be my final blog entry before jetting back to England.

In the afternoon I filmed at the SuperWASP facility and learned a lot about exoplanets.

Then to the Belgian-owned Mercator Telescope and a discussion about the Andromeda Galaxy.

I will be leaving La Palma with 14 tapes and a few memory cards full of video and photos.

The videos will be starting in January on Deep Sky Videos (more links below for Facebook, Twitter, etc).

Finally I must say a word of thanks to the Isaac Newton Group of telescopes which made this visit possible.

And especially the ING's public relations officer, Javier Mendez (right).

Javier went beyond the call of duty driving me all over the mountainside and arranging incredible access to many facilities - both at the ING and other telescopes.

He seemed to be working 24 hours a day and had an incredible knowledge about the science and technology across the observatory.

Thanks Javier.

Roque de los Muchachos Observatory is run by The Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias. I am being hosted by the Isaac Newton Group of telescopes. The videos from this trip will appear on Deep Sky Videos: YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Flickr.
