Hunter Valley Star Party (NSAS) - Thu 26th Sep 2019

NSAS is proud to announce the Hunter Valley Star Party is now up and confirmed for Thursday 26th Sept to Sunday 29th September 2019.
The Star Party will be at the Grapevines Estate which is in a picturesque setting and has a large area available for us to park cars and set up our telescopes. The site has been purposely chosen as it is central to the winery area with a range of accommodation nearby and also has an SQM rating of 20.9-21.2 mag/arcsec2 which is almost 2 bands darker than our Terry Hills site.

The Hunter Valley Star Party is aimed to be a spouse, family and friend friendly event where members are welcome and encouraged to bring spouses and friends. The setting in the beautiful Hunter Valley provides lots of opportunity to explore the area with vineyards, tours, incredible dinner experiences, many restaurants and many things to see and do.

This is not a public event and registration is restricted to members and their guests. We also intend to liaise with the local astronomy club up there and invite their participation.

Accommodation is now available to be booked and you can choose any place to stay. We have arranged for discounts at certain venues and these can and now should be booked to avoid disappointment.

For further details, see the HVSP Newsletter 2018/12/14.

Latest Event - The Queensland Astrofest 2022

Start date: Thu 21st Jul 2022    

BINTEL Will be attending the Queensland Astrofest 2022

The Queensland Astrofest has been the major star party in Queensland since its inception in 1993, and is open to all amateur astronomers. It is convened by the South East  Queensland Astronomical Society, the Brisbane Astronomical Society, the Astronomical Association of Queensland, the Amateur Telescope Makers of Queensland, the Southern Astronomical Society, and in 2013 we were delighted to welcome another local astronomy club, Star Gayzers, to take part in Queensland Astrofest and to inject some new energy into the event.

Astrofest 2022 is on. It will take place at Duckadang from Friday 22nd July through to Sunday 31st July 2022.

The July new moon this year falls on the last Friday, the 29th July. On the first Friday, the 22nd the moon will be rising just after midnight and by the Monday it won’t be rising until 03:42 so we should get a good run of clear, moonless nights.
