Join us for the
8th Herzberg Star Party / Herzberger Teleskoptreffen - HTT
September 13th to 16th 2007

Our star pary will be hosted on the area of the Rifle Club Uebigau, which is located in the East of Germany -
90 km (50 miles) south of Berlin. The Herzberg district is one of the least cloudy area in Central Europe and offers a very dark sky: Have you ever seen M33 naked eye?

The site includes the open air restaurant  "H-alpha Bar", a breakfast lunch buffet, electrical power for telescopes, a seminar building and showers. Bothersome lights and traffic are strictly controlled to reduce interference to photographers and observers. Camping is rustic but comfortable and takes place in the meadows on site. The registration charge is very low.
