You are going to have answers to miscellaneous subjects that you don’t expect. The Greek mythology aspect, the trough about the calendars and why is Amorgos so special place for to be connected with the holiness.
The equipment that we use is a 8 inch Conus telescope, a 6 inch Celestron Mascutov , binoculars Vixen and your eyes. You can bring your cameras also.
Our favorite place of observing the night sky is at Tholaria village next to Seladi café bar.
All this is organized by IRIS alternative studio and my name is Vasilis Savvas. I live in Amorgos for 20 years and the one important reason is the night sky. I began observing with a good friend Yorgos that he is now living in Sweden. But now my partner is Panayiotis and he is from Amorgos.
