Every effort is made to host deep-sky events at venues with very low levels of light pollution and good “seeing” conditions. Unfortunately “seeing” can vary greatly from night to night even at the best of venues and is entirely beyond the control of the organizers of these events. Less experienced or even novice astronomy and astrophotography enthusiasts are always welcome at deep-sky events.  There is a lot of expertise available and it is readily accessible in the many discussions that take place during the daytime.

A word of caution to the uninitiated.  Deep-sky observers seldom go to bed before dawn, so they do not at take kindly to being woken much before midday and most of them are not very user friendly before they have at least had their first two cups of coffee.

If you require any further information about any of our tours, outreach activities, star parties or deep-sky events, you will find the appropriate form here.
