A star party was held at the Parador Turismo hotel in the Teide National Park.  Brilliant – I’ll be able to get some great shots of the Scorpius region.  So here is a single sub from the Canon 5D MkII.  What’s that running along the edges of the hills?  Yep – good old light pollution.  O.K. so it was a night of bad seeing (couldn’t even see the Milky Way) as the air was clagged with Sahara dust – but it shows the problems you can encounter in what’s meant to be one of the better observing spots on the planet 🙁
