Registration for the Almost Heaven Star Party 2013 is now open! new
      #5800625 - 04/15/13 01:59 PM

On behalf of the Almost Heaven Star Party organizing team, I am pleased to announce that general registration for the 2013 event is now open. Almost Heaven Star Party www.ahsp.org

AHSP 2013 begins on Friday, September 6 and ends the morning of Tuesday, September 10. The timing of this year's event allows participants to enjoy four observing nights.

Registration fees remain unchanged from last year. Registration costs $80 for the first participant (this will rise to $100 on July 1). Additional adults sharing the same campsite are $40. Registration for children under 12 is free.

The Mountain Institute's tasty and creative hot meals will once again be available as an option for those who would like them, at $35/day (adults) and $25/day (children).

Assignments to an observing field are on a first-come, first-served basis, though--so register early to ensure that your location of choice is available! This is especially important for those bringing a large RV. We have reduced the number of field spaces available to large RVs in order to ensure availability of the relatively level ground needed by these vehicles.

We will once again offer the opportunity to take a tour on the Cass Mountain Scenic Railroad, a historic steam-powered rail line that offers a fascinating scenic tour high in the West Virginia Mountains. The tour, a roughly 2-hour round trip, will be offered on Saturday, September 7.

The popular NRAO (National Radio Astronomy Observatory) tour will once again be available on Sunday, September 8. The tour will offer behind-the-scenes access (including a tour of the control room) not available on the public tour. In addition, a small group will be able to do hands-on radiotelescope observing in the evening, using a 40-foot dish under the tutelage of NRAO staff.

We once again expect to have a terrific program of speakers and hands-on instruction; we've posted early program information on the AHSP website and will continue to update this information as we get closer to the event.

Register early! AHSP has sold out every year since 2010.

Clear skies, and I look forward to seeing many of you at AHSP 2013!
