This is not an RASC event but many RASC members attend every year and we support our good friends at the Merritt Astronomical Society.
Each year the Merritt Astronomical Society hosts a large and roomy star party - the Merritt Star Quest!
The Merritt Star Quest is NOT a public outreach event. If you do not own a telescope, then this star party is not recommended for you.
If you do own a telescope and if you are into camping and doing "all nighter's" under a canopy of stars, observing deep sky objects, as well as the occasional planet, then this event is right up your alley!
The Merritt Star Quest runs for a period of 8 days and 8 nights, making it possible for those who cannot make it for the entire week-long event to at least have the weekends. Also should one weekend suffer bad weather, then the second weekend will hopefully be better.
We strongly recommend you visit the Merritt Star Quest website for important information: http://www.merrittastronomical.com/
NOTE : Registration is required and there is a fee to attend. You register upon your arrival at the star party.
