Paul Litchen - Astrophotography Section Director, Astronomical Society of Victoria

"I had organised an Astrophotography Boot Camp for members of the Astronomical Society of Victoria who wish to learn the basics of astrophotography. The event was to be a combination of indoor presentations and on the field workshops under clear dark skies, a two-hour drive from Melbourne. It was scheduled for 24th of March 2018. Cloud Free Night predicted total cloud cover and rain at our dark sky site location 4 days before the event. I had no choice but to cancel the outdoor workshops. However, thanks to Cloud Free Night, I had time to find an alternative Melbourne indoor venue for the presentations and to notify all the attendees. We had a very successful event that was enjoyed by all who attended.

Cloud Free Night is a fantastic service for all outdoor event organizers."

"I was looking to image... forecast for Saturday was horrific... only showed a small window for Sunday night and so, not worth the effort... by lunch time, the skies looked like it might clear so I hopped onto Cloud Free Night, looked at the maps and meteogram and it predicted clear skies from early evening to morning... re-arranged my schedule, stayed up until the wee hours of the morning, happily snapping deep-sky objects... the seeing was very good. Thanks Cloud Free Night."

"Wow, what a success. CFN had our forecast spot on (Lumeah meteogram)... We set up eight telescopes not knowing how many people would show up. Kojonup, population about 2400 and in the course of the evening we had about 200 visitors... Two hours of continuous photography ensued... What a thrill to see such enthusiasm from entire families from the entire cross section of the community. A very successful outreach event."

"I use your service very frequently for my photography... and recommend your service as the best tool to understand if there will be good cloud for sunrise/sunset and of course astrophotography... Thanks for creating a wonderful platform for us to get a greater insight into what the clouds are doing. Your service has helped me create some of my best images, and I am very grateful..."

Matt Hudson - Sydney Astrophotographers

"I mostly use it for finding clear nights for astrophotography, plus some sunrise and sunset planning. It's been pretty useful so far... We've got a group of astrophotographers in Sydney who use it a fair bit... Every astro shoot I've done this year was first planned through CFN to make sure that the weather would be good, and it's yet to let me down."

Nils Terpstra - Solar Team Eindhoven

"Cloud free night has been very helpful during the Challenge! Especially the satelite imagery helped us with avoiding clouds and adjusting our short term strategy... For our long term strategy we used a combination of sources, AccessR predictions being one of the most important sources. We used the AccessR visualisation on your website to confirm our numerical model input... Thanks a lot!"

"The site has become my mainstay in planning photography shoots and astronomy sessions... I don't have empirical data, but subjectively, I think the forecasting is 85% correct, 90% of the time, which speaks volumes for the models being used. And it is soooo much easier to navigate than the BOM."

Glenn Crouch - Aegir Photography

"... your site is my favourite cloud forecast site, not because I'm into astronomy, but because I'm a landscape photographer and I like cloud in my skies at sunrise and sunset. Keep up the great work, it's fantastic to have such a comprehensive and accurate resource like yours available to use."

"I have been involved in Astrophotography for less than two months now and since I started I found out that I can trust Cloud Free Night big time, past weekend the weather was really bad in Melbourne, but Cloud Free Night was predicting a beautiful night sky in Heathcote.... so I decided to give it a try to find out it was right, wonderful sky all night that allowed me to get good shots of a lot of targets..."
