The course was dedicated to show how to measure the brightness of the sky background in order to fight against light pollution. It was an activity of the Spanish National Node for the International Year of Astronomy 2009, as part of the Cornerstone Project Dark Sky Awareness.

It was taken from top of the (opened) dome of the 3,5 meters telescope.
