If you’re visiting our site as a result of meeting us at the ROE Doors Open days then this post is for you. Thank you for visiting us at the ROE and we hope you enjoyed your day there – we certainly did and got some solar observing in as well.

If you want to find out more about astronomy then feel free to come along to one of our monthly meetings. No knowledge of astronomy required, just an interest in the subject.  Let us help you get started!

The next meeting is on Friday 5th October at 7:30pm in Augustine United Church on George IV Bridge and it’s free – you don’t have to be a member, just come along. The main talk will be about observing meteors but there will be other items such as what’s in Edinburgh’s night sky in October and a news update on all things astronomy and space. Hang around afterwards for tea, coffee and a chat to other astronomers who share your interest.

Keep an eye on our website for other news and events too. We plan to write an article on what telescope to buy – for your first scope or for Christmas – in the very near future. We are also planning to hold an event sometime in February on how to use your new telescope. Keep watching for more details.

We hope to see you at one of our meetings very soon.

Andrew Farrow, President
