New moon phases for 2017/2018

The best nighs for astronomy are around new moon when there is less moonlight to interfere with the observation of faint deep-sky objects.

Therefore we have listed these ideal windows of opportunity for 2014 and 2015 consisting of the two weeks around each new moon.

Here you can check availability of rooms against the phases of the moon for the current year.

We recommend you take these into account when booking your flights and astroholiday.
