Can you try again please? If it still fails, please email a screen shot to info@peakstarparty.co.uk. I'll pop you an email asking for the info we need and make the booking for you.

Thanks, J.

I am really looking forward to this it's:

1) close to home

2) a LOT darker than at home

3) gonna be great to meet everyone

4) not going to be curtailed (to a single night) due to personal circumstances (I hope!!) like SGL6

5) getting dark early

cheers all

Shane

Yours was the first Dob I ever looked through and you showed me twin galaxies which blew me away. I was next to Steve that week so it's nice to see that you will both be here come October.

Hi Steve,

I think you have an old copy :). The first layout had 17 with no EHU as the person I had originally put there didn't need it and we were one short. I have moved that person to #12 so 17 has EHU again. The link to the website on the plan stays the same but the file it points to gets updated every few weeks.

Thanks,

James.

My fiancée and I are going to try and make it, as this will be our first Star Party! I don't yet have a scope or camera, will it be ok to go with no observing equipment?

That would be great as I'm quite new to Astronomy, the observing part anyway! :-) I have just sent an email to the address above so hopefully I'll get more details as to what needs to be done etc.

going to a star party will be a good way to get an idea as to what optical gear you might want and what to expect from such equipment

That's exactly what I thought. I would like to get into the Astrophotography part of Astronomy as some of the pictures I have seen are absolutely gorgeous and I would like the privilege of producing some fantastic pictures myself plus as a bonus it would be good to bounce questions of people who are doing this and find out what equipment would be best suited to the task in hand! Secondly apart from camping gear, what will be needed for the party? Will I have to pay or something?

you would only have to pay for the camping fee/admission/food

Hi again, Andrewsean. One of the things I am considering is an imaging day, with workshops on local and dso astrophotography. This would be aimed at the complete beginner (like me!).

I an struggling a bit with setting this up though - any takers to help out?

Hmm tempted to come along to this one. Not been to a star party before so dont really know what to expect but since this Star Party is just down the road (relatively speaking) I should not miss the opportunity really ;)

If I come along I am willing to help out as/if needed. :D
