For those of you visiting Pioneertown Preserve for the first time, please remember to dress warmly, as the desert nights can be quite cool. Be sure to bring plenty of drinks and snacks for yourself. Bring sleeping gear if you plan to stay all night or feel you may be too tired to drive home safely.

Star Party Etiquette:
As with all star parties, please observe standard star party etiquette. Some tips: try to arrive and setup before dark; use no white light – use red filtered flashlights wherever possible – minimize white light from auto door and dome lights; if you arrive late or plan to leave early, take care to approach and park so your headlights or backup lights do not shine on other participants; if you leave early or must use white light, first give warning so observers or astrophotographers can compensate; please ask before handling other participant’s telescope equipment. Most importantly, be prepared to relax and enjoy good company under the night sky.

    I showed up, hoping to get some help polar aligning my star tracker, but it looks like because of the cloud cover, this was canceled.
