Members' programme

Telescope

Dark skies aren't always clear, so in addition to (hopefully) lots of observing, we also run a members' programme during our fortnightly meetings, which run from 7.30pm on Wednesdays at Whepstead Community Centre. The programme below may be subject to change at short notice.

If you're thinking of becoming a member, why not come along and join us? Your first two sessions will be free of charge, and if you decide it's not for you, then there's no obligation to stay.
