You mean an astronomy club? I would conside Benesov clouse enough to Prague so that any acitivity in Prague area is applicable.

Hi Honzo,

Yes I meant astronomy club.
I would be interested by starting astrophoto. I have a 114/900 that slept in carton for years. I wanted to meet people so I could learn with them how to use better my telescop.
I imagined that because there is less light pollution near Benesov than in Prague, there would be more probability to have club there.

Do you have any contact?

Thanks,

Xavier.

Most people that I know do "expedition astronomy" - that is they go someplace else than where their live to observe/make pictures for the night. That is why the Prague/Benešov distinction is mainly irrelevant.

Anyway, we do not really have many "clubs" that would be somehow organized, its mainly some friends observing somewhere. There is a thread about observation near Prague ("Pozorovani u Prahy") where people used to arrange to meet each other in the region and observe together but it is quite dead lately.

Some people (even myself) sometimes go to the area near the Ondřejov proffesional observatory (between Benesov and Prague), there is relatively reasonable sky and good locations that can be easily reached. But i haven"t heard from them in a while.

We also do have some starparties where you can meet people. In February there is a meeting near Liberec (north of the country), in April/May there will be a party in Litice (east) and so on...

In prague, we have a weekly pub meeting of amateur astronomers called "MikroAstroČaj". Čaj is tea, but mainly beer is drinked It happens every Wendesday around 18 pm to ... who konws, in Černá plíce in Karlín, near Florenc metro station. You are very welcome to join at any time.
