Organizer since:

July 15, 2011


What astronomy-related equipment do you have or are willing to bring to events? (just regular binoculars count! mention astrophotography if you're into it but mostly its binocs and telescopes I wanna hear about, details optional); red torches too!

4" Maksutov-Cassegrain, 15x70 Binoculars + 2 other smaller pairs, DSLR and decent (& tall as I'm 6') tripod+monopod. Red torches: 99p rear bike light from 99p store and a £4 head torch (when needed)


Amateur astronomer & science geek. Knows enough about the universe and viewing equipment to get you started! Have scope will travel... Also a professional computer geek (software developer)

What John G is saying about this Meetup Group

Awesome and will getting better with more members as it grows (but I would say that as the organiser!). No, really, an enjoyable friendly and beginner-friendly group that tries to take advantage of clear skies when they fit our schedule(s) and hope to do more stuff too (eg. visit exhibitions, near/in-London observatories, talks maybe)!
