Here are some of the photographs that I took during my two visits to the Griffith Observatory in October. It was partly-to-mostly cloudy the first evening due to a persistent low pressure region that sat off the coast. A rather chromatically-aberrated Vega was the only celestial object that I saw through a telescope. The skies were clear during the second visit and three 11-inch Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrains were set up outside of the observatory complex. In addition to Uranus (through the observatory's primary instrument), I had a peek at Albireo, NGC 457 (the Owl Cluster), and the Double Cluster through the SCTs.
