Our inaugural meeting was on the 8th Nov 2010 and we officially formed in Feb 2011.
AAS holds monthly meetings, often with guest speakers.

All guests are welcome!
No knowledge necessary, just a curious mind.

We are able to provide assistance with setting up your telescope or just helping to find your way around the night sky.

We host discussions on subjects as varied as "finding your way around the sky" to "Dark Energy".

Come along and get a new perspective on the universe in which you live!

Next meeting Monday 9th December – Getting started in stargazing

Another in our back to basics series, in this meeting we will cover how to start observing the stars.  Many beginners feel a bit daunted when first starting to try and observe, maybe they have a new pair of binoculars or even a telescope but have no idea how to begin.  In this talk we will describe mostly how to decide on what to look out for, how to find it and how to get the most of what you are looking at.  There is a definite skill in this and one that is easy to learn but by no means obvious to the beginner.  We will reveal the “tricks of the trade”. 

This talk will focus more on looking for things and understanding them rather than how to choose and use optical instruments, that will be covered on another occasion. 

So if you are one of those with a telescope in a cupboard or binoculars lying unused in a drawer but want to get out and enjoy the winter night sky, this is the meeting for you!

As usual, all welcome.  The meeting starts at 19:30 upstairs in the King’s Head, see you there.
