    Default Almost Heaven Star Party



    I really thought there was a subforum for star party threads, but I cannot find it. If this should be in the wrong place would a moderator please relocate it?
    I was just wondering if anyone from here was planning on attending this year's AHSP? This is going to be my first year, and I thought if there was anyone else from here going it would be a great time to put a face to a profile, and to say thank you for all the great content that can be found here. I don't post here much, but I read here all the time.
    BTW, I am really excited about the possibility of getting to observe under some truly dark skies. Never done that before.

    Hello Indytom:

    I will be in the area at that time/date. I will be staying at Camping at the Grove - Home, which is very close to the AHSP. Will be driving there to see all the different types of telescopes/rigs. The campsite is under the same dark skies.

    That is very cool refractordude. I am only planning to make one trip up that mountain and one trip down. The road may not be as bad as it looks, but I am not a fan of driving in the mountains. Later one, when I know exactly what my camp is going to look like, I will let everyone know so you can say hello.

    Great star party!! I've made several in past years...the last being in 2017. Incredible viewing and great opportunity to check out a variety of scopes!!

    We hauled a trailer loaded with equipment...including a 20 inch Obsession. The road has some "interesting" parts, but not that bad!!
