Here we are at the San Diego Astronomy Association (SDAA) Tierra Del Sol (TDS) Dark-Sky Observing Site getting ready for another fun night of observing and imaging. These are the public pads where any club member, and on one night a month, the public, can set up their telescopes. There are a number of private pads and observatories also at the club's site. We are a large club of over 500 members. As a non-profit educational organization we do over 100 outreach events a year, giving over 20,000 people a chance to look though a telescope.
