Bracknell Astronomy is a small group of dedicated stargazers based in and around Bracknell and Ascot Berkshire. Our core activities  are focussed on visual night sky observing. The group was formed in 2011 and was the first astronomy group of this kind to be established in the local area. 

 

If you are experienced or perhaps a beginner and can confidently set up your kit you are very welcome to join us. Please note you must be aged 18 years of age or over and reside in the locality. Our level of knowledge in the group ranges from beginner through intermediate and advanced.

 

Please read our FAQ as it contains all the information about who we are and what we do, and to help you decide if you would like to join,  plus an update on joining fees from Sep 1st 2019 . Our observing page HERE has details of the terms and conditions regarding usage of our dark sites . We have also added a  GETTING STARTED area which may help you as a newcomer. This section gets regular updates as well.

 

The group has regular meet ups and members can contribute articles and photos to this site, but our first love is looking up at the sky!

 

Thank you for visiting Bracknell Astronomy, enjoy the site and we look forward to meeting you.

Covid  Update 24th Sep 2020

 

Due to the changing situation with Covid 19 Bracknell Astronomy has once again had to suspend new members joining as we are unable to fulfil the criteria to meet you which is a requirement of this group and we are still unable to access our dark sites due to the current situation. The group does not want to unnecessarily expose anyone to any risk with the present forecast regard Covid, and we feel this is in the best interest of everyone. We will keep this under review and in line with current advice accordingly.

 

Thank you for your understanding.
