If we have any amateur astronomers here, me and a couple of friends from Detroit go to the Black Forest Star Party in September at Cherry Springs State Park. Cherry Springs is about a 3.5 hour drive if you take 80 and fly down back-roads like I do. It's $30 to register, $20 if you register a family of 3. We're usually the only ones representing Pittsburgh & Detroit, but there are people from all over the country and Canada that come down to it. You can either camp out on the field overnight, or just do a day trip. We usually camp, you're allowed to camp next to your car, so we have an adapter for power outlets, etc.
There's more information here, http://www.bfsp.org/starparty/index.cfm ... N=45591138
I'd suggest registering now, cause it fills up very quick.
I use a Celestron Nexstar 114, a CCD camera, and guidance software on my laptop. It's a lot of fun. Let me know if anyone's interested, and we can try and meet up.
