but as somebody else said before in this post, try to contact the Novosibirsk State University, you might be able to arrange something with their physics/astronomy department.

www.nsu.ru/english/

by the way , they also make telescopes in Novosibirsk

www.telescopes.ru/


there is an observatory in NSU.

p.s. turizm.ngs.ru/hotel/ - there you will find information about local hotels and hostels. Follow links - most of the sites have english version

Hi
Just did a quick look at the cost of flying from London to Novosibirsk (typical cost for that time of year). It worked out around €620 return. That was with Aeroflot all the way. It is about the same as a flight to say Singapore. I must contact one of my former colleagues in Germany (who goes to all of these eclipses with the German wing of the IOTA ) and see if they are organising any charter flights direct from Germany. This would probably be a cheaper option.

Just got word from my German colleague (iota.de). There is a daily flight from Hannover to Novosibirsk and they plan to use this route. As I hear more I will post it onto the site

John,

This is absolutely excellent! Does your German contact have any info on local accomodation?

What a riot being on the same flight with my Irish buddies (and Seanie). :lol:

I checked again and this flight is a connection via Moscow. They do have German contacts around Novosibirsk with local knowledge. When I find out more I will post the details-it is still in the planning stages.

Hi John,

Even with a connection in Moscow, it is still good since the delay will be minimal (an hour maybe?).

As for accomodation etc, many thanks!
