Never heard of it before - I am still fairly new to New England. Hmm, only 150 miles from Rye, NH.... Can’t say no to that:  I’m in and will bring my new Teeter 10” dob for its inaugural star party.

Excellent! It isn’t the Texas Spar Party but it’s pretty great in its own right!

No idea about this Star Party? Put on by the Rockland club (NEAF), held in MA for 10 days.

This will be my first New England star party. I have gone to Okie-Tex and the Texas Star Party before. Looks like a nice event!

Ed, do you think you might come? I would enjoy meeting you. I'm booked for Friday, July 26 through Monday the 29th.

I would love to try out some night vision equipment, so if anyone attending is planning on bringing any nv devices, please let me know.

I will be there! Just a matter of when the good weather hits. I've blocked off the whole stretch of time in my calendar so I can go when the weather cooperates. I can't be there the entire time but certainly a few of the best nights.

 

Aiming to have my freshly rebuilt 20" F/3.5 there along with another scope or two. This is a great event that I always look forward to. And yes the skies aren't TX dark but I do think they hold their own for us here in the Northeast.

It is getting close, only 6 weeks to go.  A most relaxing time with beautiful night skies.  RAC will be coming out soon with an updated local restaurant guide.
