Observers Group

Friday Night Observer Group

The Observer Group meets every Friday at 19:30 (winter months) and 20:30 (summer months). We do not meet in August

Our sessions are structured to give members an opportunity to learn more about how to navigate the sky, about stars and planets and everything to do with being an Observer.

Weekly activities are weather dependent. They include naked eye observing together with using binoculars and a wide range of on-site telescopes.

Take a look our latest observation record at nlo-observers-log-nov-16 as well as a report from our Messier Challenge 2017 for which click on the link Astro Report 25Mar17

You can still find details of our Observer’s Challenges from the menu above

In winter, if skies are clear we will normally be outside observing at 19.30 – 20.25. If cloudy then talks will take place.
