Our Chairman has carelessly misplaced Tuesdays speaker so its OPEN NIGHT again!




We meet at 7:15pm in the  Rosse Observatory .  Everyone is welcome to attend. If you are having a problem with your own telescope then bring it down and we will see if we can help or advise you. There is a visitor fee of £3 for adults but accompanied family children are free of charge.
