A group of stargazers who meet once or twice a month in Oxford Mass.
If you're a casual backyard astronomer or have never done much observing at all, gazing at the stars might be just the remedy you need to take your mind off every day life. Astronomy is obviously the oldest and most popular of space hobbies. Even the occasional sky-watching by unaided eye or a small telescope can be a marvelous experience, This group is for the casual observer.

Things to know if your considering the Oxford Astronomy Group,

You don't need a telescope to get started. Just an interest. In fact you should not get a telescope yet. A lawn chair and a good clear night is all you need. How do you know what to look for and where to look? You need a star wheel.
