Chester Astronomical Society


ContactContact through website
InfoThe society has met regularly since 1971 when it was formed by a group of local amateur astronomers. The membership has always consisted of both active observers (some of whom have built their own equipment) and 'armchair' astronomers. Interest in every aspect of astronomy is welcomed.

The society does not have an observatory, but it does have two telescopes for loan to members. There is usually at least one star party held each year, and special observing sessions are occasionally held.

No charge is made for the loan of books, videos and software from the Society Library. A monthly newsletter is also produced.

Help and advice for beginners is gladly given by the more experienced members. The topics for talks and discussions range from the basic practicalities of observing to the latest cosmological theories.
Over the years the society has enjoyed talks from a wide field of professional astronomers. We are indebted to staff from Jodrell Bank Radio Ast. Laboratory, Liverpool, Manchester, Lancaster and Lancashire Universities, and to advanced amateurs from other societies for high quality, The society has also organised visits to places of astronomical interest.

The society supports and carries out anti-light pollution campaigns.
