Amateur astronomy is a fascinating hobby.
It can be an introduction to several practical and useful technologies. Instruments used in amateur astronomy range from the unaided eye, binoculars & standard DSLRs to video cameras, large computer-controlled telescopes and even radio telescopes.
For observations, the hard part is finding dark skies that are conveniently located. Although we can't necessarily provide dark skies and the weather that goes with, we can help introduce you to this awe inspiring activity! We can provide access to field trips in Anglesey and the opportunity to observe from Tegg's Nose.
One doesn’t always require dark, just a clear sky to observe the Sun. The Sun can be viewed as white light through low cost simple filters and specialist Hydrogen Alpha telescopes that are now within the price range of an amateur.
Joining the Society provides the opportunity to look, learn, record and be enthralled.
Our members range from novices to those who have spent a lifetime in astronomical research.
Whether an armchair astronomer, visual observer or skilled astrophotographer you will find a kindred spirit within the Society.
Founded in 1990, our aim has always been to make astronomy accessible to everyone. We meet three times a month for a Workshop, Social evening and Lecture.
