• You will familiarise yourself with any information the Society provides about the Event;
• During the Event you will behave in an appropriate, lawful and respectful manner, and comply with the rules relating to, or reasonable directions of the Observing Officer or any Society committee member regarding the use of the site on which the Event is held;

• You acknowledge that all areas of the waterworks, dam, and the hill with the flagpole on it are out of bounds and are not to be entered. 

An email, or website post, will be made typically on the Friday before the observation night to confirm the night is on and has not been cancelled due to poor weather etc. as well as confirm which observation site is being used.

The gate will be open 30 minutes before Sunset.

Please arrive before sunset to allow ample time to set up in the light.

Please follow our Night Time Etiquette & Car Lights guidelines.

Imagers must not inconvenience others with un-shielded lights when doing flats.

Observation people should not park next to imaging people as they tend to leave early and thus disrupt imaging sessions.

If you intend to leave early (especially before midnight), park closer to the entrance gate so as not to disturb others who stay later.
