We are a friendly society of around 30 people who meet regularly to talk about and enjoy the night sky. We have several telescopes and other pieces of equipment which can be borrowed by society members for their own use.
Throughout the year we meet on the first Friday of each month (except July and August) at 8pm until 10pm at Timperley Village Club. At these monthly meetings we discuss the society's business and have an event such as a lecture, video, slide show etc.
We will cover a lot of things that beginners to astronomy need to know such as setting up a telescope and things like that. It will also be the AGM but that shouldn’t take much more than 10 minutes.
2 Sept 2022
The current Covid figures are not great but they are much better than last month and the hospital figures are low so we've decided we'll reconvene at the village club as normal this month at 8pm. Masks will be optional but if you can cope with them, particularly when not seated, I would prefer it.
If you aren't comfortable coming back, please join via Zoom. The link will be shared via email (to get emails, join, or if you are a member, email firstname.lastname@example.org).

OPEN DAY 2022
It hasn't been possible to organise an in-person Open Day, so we thought the next best things was to organise a virtual Open Day and the video (below) illustrates the features of this Open Day.
It's an Open Day which will cater for all age groups, and it's hoped you'll participate by attending on Zoom (the date yet to be arranged).
