Just been having a word with a very helpful chap called Moonshane, and he will be happy to help out with any collimation issues at this camp, so if your coming to this star party and need help with newtonians feel free to ask for assistance, if you have not met Shane you will find him very helpful and amenable, but if we have good clear skies give the man time to get some sleep

I took a little detour in the wagon today, so i could drive past this campsite in the daytime, to get a better idea of how the light pollution will be, there is very little around the area, i really think it will be pretty good for us.

Remember when booking, state "saddleworth star camp/party"

Is there a pitch layout or is it more informal than that? Really looking forward to it now.

      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!!)
