The astrocamp was organized by the Vihorlat Observatory in cooperation with the Podduklianske Educational Centre in Svidník and Gmina Wisniowa at the observatory in Roztoky. The event took place from 18 to 23 July 2016. Unusual at the time of the full moon. However, due to the specific nature of this year’s expedition, it did not bother at all. No observational or theoretical tasks were performed. The goal of the expedition was purely technical. To check the state of the equipment at the observatory in Roztoky, complete usable telescopes, suggest their use. In the case of the observatory’s main instrument, it was an assessment of the condition of the pillar under the installation of the telescope and a proposal for further action. These tasks were performed by an expeditionary line-up that was not numerous, but full of experts. From the Vihorlat Observatory director RNDr. Igor Kudzej and observer Pavol A. Dubovský, from the observatory at Lubomir Mgr. Marcin Cikala and domestic worker of the observatory Mgr. Ján Sadiv. Astronomers, amateurs Matúš Kamenec and Klaudia Zięba effectively assisted.
