I plan to arrive about mid day on the friday, and i think Marki will be getting there about same sort of time, if he can make this event. Not sure what time other people will arrive

Hi Guys, it seems a small mistake has been made on setting this up, when i first looked at this date i thought we would have a small moon present through most of the night, but having checked again on

Im not promising no light pollution, have already said there will be some, but should be better than most of our backyards and is just a social gathering

good, out of interest how do you rate the area for light pollution

Not good at all. I camped up there last year and took an ED100 with me,  just why I was shocked with Bolton and Manchester so near was beyond me.

I have a small update, just got back from a drive up to where this campsite is, yes there is a slight orange glow, and some lighting from residential trailers on site, so up to you guys if you want to go ahead with this camp

might be better just organising a night at the astronomy centre? if they could agree to maybe a Friday night when the general public are not present and we all joined, perhaps it would be worth their while?

well I for one appreciate the effort you have made and if it's on I'll hope to attend. if we can get out of direct lights then I am sure the skies will be better than most of our gardens'.

Appreciated Shane, its cheap cheerful and definately better than the gardens of suburbia and close so lets keep the ball rolling, also there is a nice pub 50 yards from the campsite

I have spoken with the owners of Moorlands today, very helpful, they tell me the EHU cost is no more than £3 per night but likely to be less, and we can have a quiet part of the campsite well away from the few residential part, where we will have very good vista`s, i am now back on track for this gathering, and looking forward to it

Hi Jules

Is there still room for one more ?  If so whats the latest I would need to be there

because I never know where work takes me (HGV)

Pat

Hi Pat, more than welcome, i dont see a problem with arriving late, maybe you could ask boss for a local run/early finish, but we would help you pitch tent and stuff. i do same job so i understand the problems

      If any of you are interested in a star party in East Suffolk, we have been hosting a Star Party every March and October at Hinton, near Saxmundham, Suffolk at a newly developed Caravan and campsite, Haw Wood Farm, for the last 5 years. It is £12 per pitch per night with electricity hook up (adapter needed) call Dan or Georgina (see link below). Some of you here may know about it; on good nights we have had a SQM reading of 21.75 - it can get dark enough to see the Zodiacal Light! Many local society members meet up: Norwich, Castle Point, North Essex, OASI (Orwell), DASH (local) and Breckland among others and it is generally friendly and welcoming (if we can see you in the dark!). Saturday 14th we run an event: a skytour or talks in the cafe, dependent on weather. Unfortunately, timing clashes with the SGL star party but we're a long way from it.
      See link for details: http://www.hawwoodfarm.co.uk/things-to-do/events-hawwood/

      Although not organised by SGL, it's usual for us to have a thread for SGLers attending - so you can easily find each other and say 'hi'!
      So, I'll be on Red 354 Mon-Thur and then I think Blue 267 Fri and Sat (yes, that *will* be a pain!!)
