Mid-Cheshire Astronomical Group 

Welcome to our website

Mid-Cheshire Astronomical Group was founded in February 2013.

A group of students attending a local astronomy course, run by Andrew Davies (founder member) at John Dean college, wanted a local group set up in order to continue their journey learning about the cosmos.

After spending an initial two years at Pickmere Village Hall, in March 2015 the group relocated to Delamere Forest. This fantastic location allows us to take advantage of some of the darkest observing skies in Cheshire.

The club's membership ranges from beginners to observers with several years experience. Because of this we cover a broad range of interests. We look at subjects from spectroscopy to radio astronomy, from planetary science to astrophotography. But, above all, we all enjoy going out on a clear night and looking at what the universe has to offer - British weather allowing!

Meeting monthly, our key objective is to provide a platform from which to entertain, inspire, educate and enthuse everyone with an interest in astronomy. Whether you are an experienced astronomer or new to the hobby, Mid-Cheshire Astronomical Group is a great way to get involved and start looking up!

We also have an informal group who meet most Thursdays at the Forest explorers cabin - if it's clear for observing; if not - for learning more about Astronomy. All welcome, especially beginners
