2024 Scotland's Autumn Galloway Premier Star Camp.

Recommended Posts



Hi everyone.



As usual I am announcing the dates as soon as practical so that people who need to give

employers very early dates for holidays can do so.





Scotland's Premier Star Camp during the Autumn (November) 2024



The Star Camp will be held at Drumroamin Camp Site.

(1 South Balfern, Kirkinner, Newton Stewart, Dumfries and Galloway, DG8 9DB.)



Between:    Wednesday 30th October    and   Monday the 4th November.





(The New Moon is on Friday the 1st November)



A weekend is included this time so hopefully most people may attend if at work during the week days.



Location: Drumroamin

Latitude: 54.83253

Longitude: -4.45677

October 24





November 24






This means that observers and imagers are still able to view/image some days before

and after the New Moon without moonlight pollution affecting them.



These dates for the Star Camp were picked due to several factors:

1) Likelihood of best weather combined with hours of darkness.

2) No dates available earlier in October due to Wightown Book Festival.

3) Far to close to Santa and Christmas at end of November.








The climate in Wigtown is warm and temperate but with a significant rainfall.

Even in the driest month there is a lot of rain.

This location is classified as Cfb by Köppen and Geiger.

The temperature here averages 9.1 °C | 48.4 °F. About 1346 mm | 53.0 inch of precipitation falls annually.


  As always those wishing to spend extra time at the Star Camp can arrange that with the owners of the site at time of booking.






  Hope to see you all there.

Best wishes to all.
