You don't need to be an (amateur) astronomer to attend - just interested!

For the BBQ: BBQ-sauces, bread and a variety of drinks (including German beer) are provided (donation to observatory appreciated to cover costs) but we need to bring meats for the BBQ ourselves. Shouldn't be a problem to stop at a grocery store since several of us are driving.
