Given the introduction of our Observing Evenings has proved very popular, we have decided to expand them, so expect more per year.


However this all depends on weather conditions, so arrangements are likely to be made close to any particular date, or could change even on the day. Consequently having your email and/or mobile phone number (or even land-line) is vital as you can be notified up to the minute.
So if anyone who hasn't already done so, (and of course wants to do so), please send details to:
(This goes to Chairman: Jim Webb; Membership Secretary: Alister Innes and Treasurer: Kyri Voskou)

This means they can email or text if necessary. (Still working on Tweeting...!)

Up-to-date anouncements will also be made on the Facebook page


Any specific queries regarding observing evenings - email:


The Location

There is plently of parking on site, but unfortunately there is no direct public transport. The nearest is about 1 mile. The closest underground is High Barnet. (See map below)

Those without their own transport could contact one of the Committee - see CONTACT page

In case of inclement weather, the fall-back venue is currently the Queens Arms pub, next to the Everyman Barnet cinema, (was the Odeon), at the junction of Barnet Hill/Great North Road (A1000) and Station Road (A110), New Barnet. (See map below)
