i took a hiking/astronomy/camping trip deep into the mountains of Sinai, Egypt with the good people of "Astrotrips" from The Astronomical Society of mustafa mahmoud in Egypt, we settled in this camp (barakat Camp) for the night, the sky was crystal clear which was a relief since the day before it was very cloudy and we couldn't see the night sky at all !
we've set up a number of telescopes to watch some deep space objects .. majestic milkyway rose between the two mountains behind the Camp was the perfect ending for a beautiful day.
