Star Gazing Whilst Glamping in Dorset
Dark skies are one of the many qualities of Dorset Forest Garden and contribute to the sense of tranquillity and remoteness. On a clear night the low levels of light pollution make Dorset one of the best places in the country for stargazing. We are particularly fortunate being in a vast closed valley with not a hamlet in sight.
Making the Most of the Dark Skies
If you have a telescope you may wish to bring it with you. Don’t worry if you haven’t, as we have high quality Opticron binoculars which are excellent for stargazing available to borrow (please don’t take them off the farm). If you are new to astronomy binoculars can be better than a telescope.
You need to allow time for your eyes to get used to the dark skies and start to see the finer details. Any light source can affect this process. A red light torch will help you to see but not affect your vision.
