    Default Cherry Springs Park Pennsylvania



    I am planning a trip to the dark skies of Cherry Springs State Park in PA. I will there the nights of the 17th, 18th and 19th of May. It will be my first major field test for me and was wondering if anyone on these forums were perhaps planning on visiting the park at the same time. I could use any advice on the hobby that I could get. Hope to see you there!

    I'll be going to the BFSP in the fall.

    If you have time check out the PA grand canyon and the Elk around Benezette.

    I would like to go to the BFSP but I cannot commit that far ahead yet. Have you ever been there during the week? I am just anxious to know if I can expect others to be there that I can chat up.
