Some of us will be attend The Nebraska Star Party coming up on July 19th – 24th.
This is one of the least expensive events to attend this year. It great camping, and completely dark since no fires or white lights is allowed at night during these events. This creates a truly aw inspiring night skies, almost as good as going to a planetarium. It’s a great time to talk to other Amateur and Astronomy Enthusiast. There is about as many different telescopes and astronomical devices as there are people. They will usually also have door prizes, new and used equipment for sale to.
