Here are some photos of the CTARC excursion to the SA Astronomical Observatory in Observatory, Cape Town on 28 March 2015. The afternoon started at around 18h00 with a picnic held on the patio outside the SAAO lecture theatre. It was a pleasant, sociable late afternoon before the lectures began at 19h00
