Dark Sky Ranger

Hello from darkest Dumfries and Galloway

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone, I am one of four new Freelance Biosphere Dark Sky Rangers here in Dumfries and Galloway. I met a couple of your members a week or so ago when they were up preparing for your next Star Party up here. I am just starting out and it was great to meet such enthusiastic and knowledgeable people and I thought that I should sign up and find out more.

All the best to you all, Elizabeth.

Thanks for all your help,  the binoculars are here and they are great for moon watching so I will use them for my star walk at the Wigtown Book Festival on Saturday and at Sanctuary too. Shame I didn't get to meet Steve in person but I will soon. I have been asked to look into the parallelogram mount that you had if anyone has any suggestions they would be welcomed. E

Hi Eliizabeth,

Welcome to SGL, Mike told me about your visit to Galloway. He did say you missed the best of the night unfortunately, better luck next time! It will be nice to meet you hopefully at the Autumn Galloway Star Camp in November. Sounds like you have an interesting job lined up. Best of luck with it.

Thanks, it has been good so far and I am intending to come along to the Star Camp along with the other Dark Sky Rangers to learn more from you all. :-) E

Thanks,  it was great to meet up with you too. My fist walk on Saturday had nearly 40 people on it so I hope the rest continue to be popular. I was buzzing after as they all seemed to enjoy it. :-) Elizabeth
