ASE-24 Observing List for Beginners
The Society has produced a list of objects with observing notes to give beginners in astronomy with a small telescope a starting point with which to begin their journey.
We have created three kits for children and other beginner astronomers:
- Sundial for 55° latitude
- Planisphere for 55° northern latitude
- Seasonal star charts with log of constellations learnt
Publications of the ASE
The “series” of Publications of the Astronomical Society of Edinburgh comprises of two issues only:
Guide to the City Observatory
The Society has produced a short Guide to the City Observatory. The Society occupied the observatory from 1938 until 2008.
The Society publishes its Annual Reports and Accounts. This report is required by the Constitution to be presented at the Annual General Meeting. This report is also required by the Charities Accounts (Scotland) Regulations to be submitted to the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR).
The Society’s Journal appeared three or four times each year from 1980 to 2010. These can be found in the Members area of the website.
In 2013 it became an online blog which is no longer updated. Journal entries are also archived on the Old Journal Archive page. The Journal became little more than the monthly Sky Diary which is now hosted on this website.
