This meeting will focus on the observation of deep sky objects using the excellent facilities at the Charterhouse observatory. Please bring along your own equipment as well and there is an ideal viewing area next to the observatory, which is located well away from the 'Bristol aurora'.

Charterhouse hosts an enormous 18.25" Fullerscope Newtonian reflector telescope and is one of the largest instruments available to groups in the South West. Access has been facilitated by "Stars over Somerset", who offer a variety of astronomically related courses. Details may be found on their web site at http://www.starsoversomerset.com/
