That is a pity Norm, hopefully next year?

Where is our countdown clock Jen, it is getting close. Time for me to pull out the tent and check it over! I know I have one repair to do at least.

Sorry to hear there are a few missing camp this year.

I'm trying to put together a list of targets for some good viewing. Trying to work out what will be in view.

Really looking forward to camp.

Hi everyone, I haven't been here for along time, all paid up ready for the SVAC, hoping for a great weekend and being able to catch up with everybody. I have an interesting question for all the avid Stellarium users, I stumbled across a dialogue box on screen which read "What's Out Tonight" I did a search and found a listing in the scripts files I even took a screen shot, Now my question is, has any one else come across this box, and if so could you please tell me where I can find it again. (on screen) or a short cut for it if there is one.
Cheers Robert Cloudy Stawell

Hi Robert,
I don't know about that feature.
I'll have to look it up. I'm trying to list a few things to look at during camp.
Will have to set the date ahead and run some time lapse in Stellarium.

Hi Drew, Yeah I was clicking around and come across this box, I will try and up load the script page where I found it.
The url for it is https//stellarium.org/scripts.html
I can't get the page to upload.
Cheers Robert

New guy

Hey guys. My name is Rudi.(21)

Iíve been directed here by a man named Renford who is apparently a member or was a member of this group. Now Iím totally new with forums, so I do apologise if Iím posting where Iím not supposed to.

He told me about this Snake Valley camp thatís upcoming, and suggested I go. Iíve never been to a Star Party and would like to join if possible. Iíll only be able to be there the Saturday to Sunday though.

Any reply would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Rudi

If Malcolm doesn't answer you directly here, I would suggest dropping him an email at snakevalleyastrocamps@gmail.com or contact him as per page 2 of this thread. I think he is back from overseas.

Normally not a problem to just attend the Saturday and Sunday, would suggest if you are going to attend to arrive well before dark to set up, plenty of people to help you if you are new to Astronomy, as well, Saturday night has the Feast on so a good opportunity to meet and get to know the attendee's. The Camp is a very relaxed affair but there is a light policy in force after dark as would be expected, as I said before, if you are new to the hobby there will be plenty of people to help you.

Hope to see you there.

Cheers

John G

Lol! Too late Jen! Science brainwashed me since a kid. ��Already bought a Saxon F767 a few weeks ago, and was looking for a bigger telescope before I even had a look through that one��

Oh and I had the opportunity to see Jupiter and Saturn through it.

Guys,

I would like to visit you on Sat. Since I had other priorities, I haven't finish the modification of my LXD75.. so it will be just visit.

Do I have to do anything else, apart from this ?
Hopefully see all of you there.

Hi Rudi

Welcome aboard! Renford couldn't have directed you to a nicer group of people for your first astro camp. We have all been fortunate to share and swap experiences (stories!) with him when he's been able to attend.

Saturday night will kick of with a roast (Steve provides the spit, Malcolm the meat & salad) and it's only $10. There will also be pavlova for desert.

If there are no clouds we'll get a nice dark sky and everyone there will be more than happy to let you look at and through their gear and answer your questions. It's how all of us have progressed in this hobby ourselves.

I'm also looking forward to catching up with the regulars - and to those who can't make it - may you get well and be fit and able so that we can see you in March 2020. Queue Jen's countdown marker.

Malcolm - will two pavs be enough? Or should I plan for three based on current numbers?

Paul
