wonderful experience and very informative sessions.. Clouds taught us patience even though sky is readily available. All 5 telescopes helped us to gradually explore Orion , different nebulae , moon , constellations . Jupiter with his moons and Saturn with moon gave us a lifetime memorable moment .A comfortable stay with good food and tent facilities. Midnight coffee gave altogether different flavour to your info lectures. Nicely organised, well-mannered, easygoing, respectful handling made to fall in love with your grp along with sky babies. Thanks in tuns . Dr. A. Vyas

Was spellbound listening to the informative talks by all the volunteers. Really appreciate your sincere efforts in spreading the knowledge and curiosity of astronomy among children as well as adults. The arrangements were good and the tents were also nice. The maturity you all showed in handling questions and issues is commendable. Its upto us now to learn more through our own efforts and explore further using the resoures you pointed. Please add me to the whatsapp group you mentioned where you give info on upcoming events and webinars etc. Wish and hope to meet you in near future. Please keep up the good work and best wishes to all astro-enthusiasts .. - Parag Sathe
