Hi All,

Shannonside Astronomy club will be running its annual BSP in the Poulnabrone Dolmen Car Park, County Clare, September 26th-27th 2014.
If the weather is not good, we will abandon the observing and go back to Logues Lodge in Ballyvaughan.

If you have your own scope or binoculars, its worth your while bringing them along.
This is a free "let's go observing event" at a great dark sky site, open to all.

Cheers,
Gordon

Note: The BSP was originally to be held on the 19th/20th September, but after our last meeting a few members said they would be unable to make that weekend, hence the move to the following week.

Hey Gordon,
Cant wait !!
Its a great site and less then an an hours drive from Limerick and Galway with plenty of hotels in the area.
Its in the lap of the weather gods, but isn't that always the case in the west.
Its worth saying that the club has a 12" dob, a 10" SCT and 25x100 binos which anyone there can use, you don't need a scope to enjoy it, although if you have one you'd be encouraged to bringing it..
Will be doing the annual dusting down of the 20 inch mirror before that weekend.

Looking forward to a good one this year.
