Starparty @ Kelling in September

Recommended Posts

Just a toe in the water to see if anybody else is planning on going to this one. ??

My plans to go to Kielder this month were scuppered at the last minute although I guess I didn't miss any observing :). I've booked to go to Kelling in April so I'll see how that goes. My wife is expecting baby number 2 at the end of September so I may be forbidden to leave Somersetfrom September 1st onwards...

One day I'll make it to a star party!!

Nice one Daz! :p

How did you pull that off? Perhaps Kelling Heath reception took one look at me when I asked and thought "We'll stick him at the edge somewhere..."

My wife has confirmed my non-attendance at the autumn event but has tentatively agreed that I can go to next years spring one. :D.

After my trip to Kelling last weekend, and having the best sky I`ve seen when the fog finally lifted (normally view from my back garden), I'll definitely be back in the Autumn, although next time I might try to bring a slightly larger car than my Ford Ka to stuff all the gear into :D )

I was the quiet non-social one on pitch 337 (worlds largest pitch with the world smallest car) on the Saturday. As it was my first star party, and the first time I have been out under a really dark sky, I spent more time at my scope, and less time talking to other attendees.

Where abouts is Kelling Heath exactly?

Seen it advertised on the Widescreen Centre website.

Kielder is miles away for me :? although I can imagine its brilliant, walked through it once.

Quite right. My first one was the same! Hope you'll be more sociable in Sept?? :D

Been a couple of time before, so its quite likely I'll go again in September. Probably just for the day on Saturday.

I think I preferred it when it was held at the Dower House camp site, in Thetford Forest. I believe the event outgrew the venue.
