looking at the sky

We are a friendly, relaxed, group of people sharing a common interest in all things astronomical.

Our membership ranges from complete beginners to those experienced in observing and the more technical aspects e.g. astrophotography.

We usually meet on the first and third Fridays of the month during the winter and third Fridays only in the summer. The meetings start at 7:30pm. More...
