Meetings are an informal get together. All levels of interest are catered for,  from absolute beginner to the professional. We start off with a brief  20 minute presentation on the 10 foot projector screen using the planetarium software on the clubs laptop, showing the skys highlights for the month. Then finally we usually have a visiting or club speaker giving a presentation or workshop.

If you have a telescope and are having difficulty or need advice getting a new telescope, you are welcome to come along to the club meetings and seek our advice, please mention it to one of the committee members at the start of the meeting if you have a telescope with you as we have to vacate the room at 10pm. If you cannot make it to a club meeting, you can always drop us an email, we will do out best to answer any questions you may have. If you are a payed up member, you will receive a text on your mobile phone the day of the club meeting, as a reminder.

If you have an interesting astronomically related topic you'd wish to present at a club meeting, approach any of the committee members in a club meeting and they'll slot you into whatever month suits you.
