Bracknell Astronomy is a small group of night sky observers based in and around Bracknell and Ascot Berkshire, with a remit focussed on visual observing. The group was formed in 2011 and was the first astronomy group to be established in the local area. 


If you are a beginner and just starting out with a telescope and can confidently set up you are very welcome to join us. 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. There are a few rules but not too many! 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.
