InfoWe are a friendly Society situated between High Wycombe and Amersham in Buckinghamshire, England.

We have around 80 members of all ages and levels of astronomical knowledge from beginners through to advanced amateurs. We have a lively observing community at our permanent observatory in Buckinghamshire.

Cygnus, our monthly newsletter, is sent free to all members either online or by post if you're not online. It is a very popular and professional publication produced monthly by our dedicated and hard working editors. It includes a wealth of information including details of the meetings and activities of the Society, future events organised by the national astronomical societies and articles written by our members.

Our Observatory
The Chiltern Observatory was built between 1990-1996 for the benefit of all our members & guests and Woodrow High House (part of the London Federation for Young People). The Observatory houses a Meade 10-inch LX200 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope which is permanently mounted on a concrete pier and equatorial MegaWedge.

Use of the Society's Observatory
The Society's observatory is available for members and non-members to use whenever clear skies permit. The Society has a number of "night operators" who are experienced telescope users who will open the observatory and help members to use the telescope. Observing takes place all year round whenever the weather permits it.
