Whether your interest is visual, technical, historical, scientific or spiritual you will find a kindred spirit within the Society. Many of our members have considerable experience in many aspects of amateur astronomy such as astrophotography and CCD-imaging. If you are considering buying a telescope, talk to our experienced observers who will happily offer advice and guidance. The Society owns several telescopes and binoculars, which are available for loan by members. We also have an extensive book and video/DVD library from which titles may be borrowed.
