The Solar Observers Meeting is upon us! Soleye300 will be there.

Post by Laszlo Francsics »

Dear observer friends,

Get ready for an exciting week in the world of solar photography!

We're heading to Serbannes, France, for the 'RENCONTRES DES OBSERVATEURS SOLAIRES', the annual meeting of solar observers, which will be held on June 22-23.
It's not just a conference, it's a chance to learn, network, and grow in our passion.
It's a mix of a festival, camping, and conference for solar photography enthusiasts.

Some highlights of the program:
  • Christian Viladrich will be testing his new UV filters live
  • there will be a presentation about the Sol'Ex spectroheliograph and the SunScan project
  • I will bring the Soleye 300 and explain and demonstrate its features to the audience
We'll share what's going on in Serbannes on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Look for the ros24 hashtag. Planning on doing some Lives as well.

Ditto. Looks very inviting.

I may decide to make that move. I really miss the Mediterranean climate of coastal California, but can't afford to move back there. So France, Spain, Italy, or Portugal seem attractive right now, along with Australia.

They also rank higher than the USA on the Democracy Index.

Hi all,

Laszlo gave us an impressive presentation of SolEye :-)

As it was recorded, it will be probably available on the web in a while. Good news, it is in English !

Here is a picture of Laszlo presenting SolEye (weather was not really good ...) :

Wow, this event looks wonderful.
Maybe we should organise a 'school trip' from the UK to a future one?!

This meeting happens once every two years and is near Vichy (center of France).

We also have another solar meeting (again once every two years) near Paris. It would be great if some of you guys could attend ! Next one is scheduled on June 21st and 22nd 2025.
Here are some info from 2023 Jason meeting :

Thank you. Paris is much easier to get to from the UK via train or plane. I will read about it later using translate on my laptop. I know minimal ‘holiday French’ but with calcium being the same in French and English, we could get by!
Is there a mailing list so we could watch out for the date?
How far is the event from the airport in Paris?
Do you need to buy tickets?

Are we on for this Michael (astroshot) and who else is up for it?!

An English webpage is going to be created in a few days.

Barron village is about 30 km north-east from Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport. This is about a 30 mm drive.

I am not sure about the date of registration. Maybe something like 3 or 4 months before the event.

Registration is for attending the event, and there is also the option to register for lunch too, which is quite friendly.

I can keep you updated when I have some news.

PS : thinking about it, maybe some of you guys could give a short presentation on "solar can" ?

I've just enjoyed looking at the link you shared online and so I have put the dates in my diary!
That's kind of you to keep Michael and I (and hopefully more people) informed.
If it's helpful then perhaps I could bring some information and examples of the Solarcan and Puck and set up on a table outside for people to look at if it is sunny. We could record a solargraph over the weekend to mark the occasion... if it's sunny! With the help of Google translate I could answer questions! I will be happy to share information in any way you think will work.
We look forward to hearing more,
Thank you very much indeed for your kindness,
Nic

Christian, I told Sam Cornwall (inventor/business owner at Solarcan) about your suggestion for a presentation and he is happy to come and give a presentation about Solarcan himself! Good news!
That’s at least 4 of us aiming to be with you in June ☀️

Thank you Pulsar59, what is your name?
Hopefully when you announce it more formally even more people will be tempted to attend.
Looking forward to meeting you all,
