About Us

We are a friendly, relaxed group of people sharing a common interest in all things astronomical. Our membership ranges from complete beginners to those experienced in observing and the more technical aspects such as astrophotography.

We meet at Summercourt New Memorial Hall, Cornwall on the third Thursdays of the month throughout the year. From October to March we also hold practical meetings on the first Thursday of each month at Trevarrian Holiday Park. All meetings start at 7:30pm.

Further information on the club, how to find us, what we do and Contact Us details can be found under the ‘Home’ menu dropdown at the very top of this page.

and create a more interesting and complete image.
