Hi Nerro

You'll have to contact Skelligs lodge but I'm pretty sure they have a few rooms left.. You will have to ring as it says it's fully booked online.. Just tell Frida it's for the Skelligs Star Party in Aug and she will give you the group rate..

Cheers Roy

Hi Lino..

Yah, we're observing from the Skelligs Lodge
grounds as they said they have plenty of room
for us all to set up.. The guys from the Cork Astronomy
Club use the same place each Nov and it is perfect for observing.

Cheers Roy

Hi Guys..

Frida just rang me to confirm some
numbers, So far there are 17 people
booked(Which is great numbers).
She also said she has 3 rooms left
so for those who haven't booked yet
it's time to get a move on.

Really looking forward to this, only 4
and a half weeks away.

Cheers Roy

Is everyone drawing up their observing lists? Or is that just me?

For me, I plan to go as deep into the south as possible. when will the next opportunity to observe these regions become available? Sagittarius is the top target, but I'm also hoping to go really south of the border and see if I can observe objects in such constellations as Microsopium, Piscis Austrinus, Corona Australis, Grus and Sculptor.

I would be interested in what other observers plan and doing.
