Macclesfield Astronomical Society

About the Club

Amateur astronomy is a fascinating hobby and can be an introduction to several practical and useful technologies. Instruments used in amateur astronomy range from the unaided eye, binoculars & standard DLSRs 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.

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 or a keen meteor-observer, you will find a kindred spirit within the Society.

Founded in 1990, our aim has always been to make astronomy accessible to everyone."
