Interesting, a 6.7uwa, I'd be interested to see that one in action.

Yip.
Pretty much ready to go.
I've all my gear on the floor in the sitting room doing a check over.
My Astrotrac should be here tomorrow.
(fingers X'd!)

I'm modifying my ETX-125 field tripod to accept the astrotrac
with kind thanks to Mikkell for lending me his Manfrotto 410 geared head and a couple of adapters.
It looks like it's gonna be a rock solid yet very portable mount.
Now all I need is the Astrotrac and I'm ready to fly!

I've scaled back what I'm bringing in total.
hopefully to make the journey easier.

I'm getting there, given the replies here there is no point bringing any eyepieces, that's handy as its less weight in the hold.

Vagelis, what amount of clothing do you reckon we need!?
I'm traveling light.

I'm just going to bring literally what I am wearing on the flight out.
(Pair of Vans, Shorts, T & a hoodie.)

In the case I've thrown a few T's & some 'socks n' jocks'.
Then for the nights on the mountain a Ski pants & jacket.

I see nearly everyone in the images you linked
are wearing runners.
I was thinking we might need boots of some sort but I reckon the
Vans I have will be fine.

Up to what time in the night would you get away with wearing shorts?
I really don't want to bring any long pants if possible but John was
saying his ski pants came in handy.
