Astronomy Groups

There are many groups for members to attend at the observatory.

If you would like to become a member the details of how to join are here.

Each month there is a meeting on a Monday evening with a lecture. The schedule for these is posted here.

The History of Science group meets on Tuesdays.

The Astronomy Group meets on Friday evenings beginning at 7:30pm and  comprises five sections:

The Astroscouts for students under 16.
The Observers section
The Astro Imaging section
The Radio Astronomy section (including SPAM)
The Spectroscopy Section

On each Friday evening the leaders of each section will arrange appropriate activities/tasks or lectures for 7:30 and then there will be a general talk at 8:30 for all groups. It is possible that smaller groups may form in each section as they develop in order to account for all members’ interests. To learn more about each of the sections please view the links. The diary for the 8:30 talks can be found here.
