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 Thursdays in Nowton Park. The programme below may be subject to change at short notice.

As well as planning and hosting our ever-popular Star Parties in the park, we will also be arranging a social event this year and checking out a potential new dark-sky site at West Stow.

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.
