East Dam...........唉 !

文章 Chanlunlun » 週六 10 8月, 2013 08:40

Another excellent star gazing spot in Hong Komg has fallen.

There are just too many people crowded there. For EVERY minute or so there was an arriving taxi, with its high intensity xenon high beam light shooting at you, unloading hikers, photographers, lovers, parents and their sons and daughters.......and so on.

Schools of cyclists kept on passing through with their super bright headlamps. Giant radios playing loud sounds with music of variety but annoying.

All in all you were inside a busy crowded battlefield instead of a serene country side. But make no mistake - the sky there is still beautiful, if you can bear all those unbearable to me.

For me, I just couldn't set up the telescope at center of a noisy market place.

anyone

噚晚冇緣欣賞鏡神支鏡
不過東壩環境真係好恐怖,令人好失望
有幾批單車隊來回走過,停低休息都長開車頭燈
有批影相同好用大電筒照明,有時一照幾家都中招
人潮係數十至100人,唔知係咪畀英仙座流星雨吸引
真係好難靜靜地睇星,更唔好講開壇

最後睇到2點就撤退,收獲5粒流星當安慰獎

多謝提醒,本來也想過去,現在真要三思了。走上山丘會好一點嗎?

Yes it may be much better if you are able to stay away from the main road.

尋晚11點幾去到,成個東壩仲旺過旺角,不過到12點過後人潮就開始漸散,可能係見到起雲,以為無野睇。好彩到兩點之後D雲開始散,到最後都仲有半晚玩

我入西壩,環境好東壩十倍以上,上半夜係多的士,騎單車人時來來往往,但到十二點過後就幾乎沒有了,一點也不擠迫、曹吵、給人搔擾,其實不一定要到東壩,西壩亦一樣可以拍到好的星野,以及可以臥看英仙流星雨~

I drove to West Dam, Astropark and East Dam within the same night to directly compare the quality of the sky at around same time.

East Dam is obviously much darker than other places. The Milky Way was obvious above East Dam but cnnot be seen above West Dam or Astropark, at around the same time, after dusk.

Unfortunately East Dam was so crowded with people.

Went to 大坳門 last night, cannot compare the sky condition, but the atmosphere here is totally different, at least no cars and no people flashing light on you in short distance, plus an almost 360 degree unobstructed field of view, we can see mercury rise as well. I'd rate it higher than 東壩 for usability.

Car park is available as well but there is a little walk from car park to the observation site.

太空館就此發表的呼籲...

太空館就此發表的呼籲...

昨晚有不少朋友出動欣賞英仙座流星雨,萬宜水庫東壩更是人山人海,但卻為該處黑暗的地方製造極大光害!太空館在此呼籲各位觀星及攝星朋友,在星空下請盡量避免使用白光照明工具,否則將嚴重影響整個場地的觀星質素。如有必要照明,可準備紅色玻璃紙將電筒包裹,紅色光線較不會剌激眼睛,可保持我們的夜視能力。有關更多觀星時應有的禮儀,可瀏覽太空館的網頁:http://www.lcsd.gov.hk/CE/Museum/Space/ ... manner.htm

I arrived at aound 4:00 a.m. on 12th morning and there were not much people there but still a few of them using very bright LED spot light...........

Fortunately we found a place away from the main road. Nobody's there and we enjoyed the serenity. We kept on counting shooting stars under milky way..............

是否最近流星雨大 show 才會這麼多人? 遲D可能好點!

鏡神, 你自已駕車進去? 你有禁區紙嗎?
