Next Events

We are currently on our Summer break although looking forward to a BBQ get-together at a members house in July.

Our next open event on Thursday 14th September at Cliddesden school will be a practical session led by Tristram on telescope set-up and basic maintenance.

We look forward to welcoming back our members from their Summer break including updates from the organized trip to Tenerife in June to observe and photograph the night sky from on a truly dark sky location.

We always welcome visitors and potential new members so why not come along?
