We will commit a meeting point to pick you up and go to the camping zone. If you want it, you can take regional lunch for additional cost, after that you will be assigned to a camping tent. Once you are already installed, the night equipment is borrowed to you (red lamps, binoculars and maps). The workshop to install a telescope begins before sunset (It might be your own telescope if you bring it with you). Once it is already dark, we will start a tour of the constellations and celestial mechanics, pointing with lasser the name of the stars and the main astherisms. After basic constellations are shown, we will perform a tour of the stars evolution while you see the object in the binoculars. After solve your questions, we can sleep along the rest of the night and go breakfast next morning.
