The factory for Astrosib is also in Novosibirsk.

Prices are very good and the quality is reputed to be good too.

I see that they sell 20" optics for 2,800euro, which is an excellent price!

Мы также имеем билеты воздушной трассы с Аэрофлотом.

Привет Новосибирск!

Just considering options at the moment Vagelis.

In terms of flights, one can fly with S7 airlines from Dublin on 30th July at 10:35pm to Moscow and arrive at 5:30am on the 31st. At 11:35am, one can then fly to Novosibirsk and arrive at 6:30pm.

On the return leg, one can fly from Novosibirsk on the 2nd or 3rd of August to Moscow (5 flights each day). However, the next flight to Dublin from Moscow is on the 3rd at 8:40pm (none on the 2nd) which arrives back in Dublin at 9:55pm (all times are local)

Cost of flights is approx €520 per person, including taxes.

Now, what I'd need next is a hotel. The Sibir is full. I've sent an e-mail to Riverpark Hotel. Let's see what happens. Haven't decided one way or the other yet as to whether I'll go or not, considering the 50/50 weather prospects.

Of course, if we did arrive in Novosibirsk, how would we get to a suitable observing site? What arrangements have you made? Are you on an organised tour or did you make the travel arrangements yourself? Have you got a bus organised? If you have a bus organised, we could hire a car and follow your bus out there perhaps?

Hi everybody,

some news concerning solar eclipse in novosibirsk ( novosibirskguide.com/news/available_hotels )

Several days ago Russian News Agency RIA Novosti announced, that Novosibirsk's officials are going to set up special place for observing in the city. Also, it is said, that no free rooms left in all Novosibirsk hotels. Well, that's not true - we've made several calls to hotels and found out that there ARE free rooms for the eclipse days. Nevertheless, travelers already feel difficulties with booking up, so we start special topic our forum , where all information about rooms in hotels will be placed. We hope you, our visitors, will help us in collecting information!


i hope you could help in filling this topic about free rooms :)
