OTHER INFORMATION

We are one of the foremost societies in the UK with around 100 members. We have monthly meetings with external speakers, plus additional meetings featuring short talks by members of the society. We have our own observatory with a 14" Meade LX200 and various other scopes. We hold observing sessions for members and several Public Star Parties every year, and we also hold Public Astronomy Sessions at weekends in local towns. We also have members' outings, an annual quiz and our famous Star-B-Que. See our website for full details: www.ldas.org.uk
