Savoy Star Party


About Us

There is a $5 Per Person Registration Fee. Fee will be collected at Shady Pines Campground.

Our names are Mark and Louise Hettinger. We are married with 3 kids, who all share a passion in astronomy, along with many of our friends and their families.  We would like to invite you to join all of us, for our annual Savoy Star Party located in the beautiful Berkshires (dark starry skies). During the day we enjoy all the amenities of the beautiful camping grounds of Shady Pines Campground (SPCG). Some of the daily activities include: Camping, Hiking, Swimming, and much more... Some of the events for the 2013 Savoy Star Party: Model Rocketry, Storytelling /Campfire, and much needed peaceful rest and relaxation. Our nighttime events focus around the astronomical viewing field packed with telescopes, and the friendliest astronomers you will ever meet. Come for a day, a night, or a week, for a time you'll never forget. Under some of the darkest skies Massachusetts has to offer, GREAT NEW FRIENDSHIPS ARE AWAITING !
