Mike.
You can get those showers in Argos.

Dave.
I too have been planning a little.
I've been very busy workwise lately so I'm only getting a small while
here and there to sit at the PC and select a hit list.

I'm pretty much hoping to spend the lions share of our limited time there observing as much as possible.
It'd be a total waste to spend the entire trip imaging
when we have a fantastic opportunity to select targets we simply will never observe from Ireland.

In terms of astro gear.
10X50 Binos.
Sky atlas.
Canon 350D.
various lenses & accessories.
Tripod.
&
Astrotrac

all this will fit nicely into my Lowpro travel bag:

(CARRY ON!!)

and one small rucksack with the tent / bag and clothes etc in
as checked luggage.

Dont forget your sunblock! :D

Guys,

About those showers, they are cheap and are sold everywhere here, don't worry, I can provide some to you, if it's difficult finding them.
When I said to Frank "bring yours", it's because their volume is tiny.

About your observing lists, let us know of it. I, Yannis and Leon can do some homework and prepare our telescopes for these objects. And we can add some more objects.

Dave, DO bring 100 ASA slide or negative, because you will have at least 3 1/2 hours :D

Well here is a DSO list in excel that I've made for
Greek astrophotographers, so it will be easier
to make a schedule for Parnon weekend.
Select from the filters month (July) and
you'll find whats up on the 22.00 Greek time.
Then you may select from filter the constellation
or the DSO you are interested for and make your program.

See you soon!
"Joker in the pack"

ps. Frank, I'm glad you bought this astrotrac and i'll have my telescope
for the whole night :lol:

Wish I could go again in July.

Nevermind - I'll have 2 weeks in Fuengirola from July 14th. Maybe I can get a good Southern view from the beach at night, and practice some more photography on Sagitarius and Scorpius.

Hope all my Greek buddies are keeping well, and not missing the Bushmills too much.

Clear Skies,

John, we all had a great time in June, and all of us who met you, we are all missing you.
Kyriakee sends you her most warm greetings!
You will always be welcome, summer or winter, anytime of the year.
Have a good time and take care!
