Amateur astro-photography expedition (snapshots of the night sky) on Korcula
April22, 2011 at 7:28 pm #21308
Dear Korcula friends,
Next month we would like to make a small Czech amateur
astro-photography expedition (making snapshots of the night sky –
Stars, Galaxies, Nebulas) to the one of the southern Jadran islands
(Vis, Korcula, Mljet or Lastovo).
Actual plan is to arrive during the weekend 28-29/5 and stay about one
week either by two passenger cars or one autocamper (3-5 persons).
Our aim would be to find the most remote place outside of the towns
and villages and the light sources (ideally on top of the hill). Erase
there our few mobile telescopes and build the two small tents or stay
in the caravan. During the day visit the local shops/restaurants and
during the nights do our hobby.
Is there any way how to make our trip legal? We are ready to pay some
reasonable fees to the local authorities in order to collect any kind
of approval/license potentially needed for camping outside the
official camps, which are usually light “polluted”.
If this would be impossible, please could you recommend the most
remote pension/apartment/camp available for rent on your island
(ideally far from villages, staying standalone, in mountains/hills)
where we would be able to erase our telescopes safely and don’t
thank you for hint or recommendation.

hi pavel,that sounds so exiting!according the current camping law, there is no way you can camp outside designated camping areas anywhere in croatia, as it is not legally possible.i would suggest you to rent small cottage in zrnovo, pupnat or defora area and do your activity from around there – links:https://www.korculainfo.com/zrnovo/https://www.korculainfo.com/defora/ https://www.korculainfo.com/pupnat/'astronomska udruga’ from korcula is group of people interested in similar things as you are, so i guess it would be a good idea to get in touch with them, too :http://www.korcula.net/astro/i will also forward your request to Ivan Sardelic from ‘astronomska udruga’ and ask him to get in touch with you.. let me know if you need further help..April24, 2011 at 9:57 am #22238
