KPP doesn't disappoint, even with more standing water than the park has scene in a decade, even with temps dipping into the mid 30's, even with winds approaching gale force speeds the night time and dark skies make it all worth while.
We were unable to set up our scopes at the usually scope pads because of standing water, so we decided to set up next to our camp site. The amount of open sky was some what limited because of the tress but we were able to get to all our deep space targets.
The "wall up" proved invaluable, not only keeping the winds at bay from the scopes but also keeping the wind from our shivering bodies that night.
Night one was just epic, cold, light wind, no bugs and very clear.
I also took along my UAV to take some areal video, I always wanted to get a birds eye view of this park and although a bit windy the UAV handled like a dream.
My main reason for camping at KPP is to take photos of deep space targets. This year I was fortunate to take home 2 beautiful images of the cosmos.
Untill next year KPP!
