Observing at Flamsteed Observatory

Observing at Flamsteed Observatory

The second Saturday of the month from January 2023 to December 2023

Flamsteed Observatory
Near Brailsford, Derby, Derbyshire, DE6 3BY

Weather permitting, astronomers from the Derby & District Astronomical Society hold monthly observing sessions at their Flamsteed Observatory, located near the village of Brailsford.

The observatory is home to a 10″ Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope which offers excellent views of the planets, Moon and deep sky objects. Members of the Society also bring their telescopes too.

During the summer, viewing the Sun using a special solar telescope is possible, and events start a little later in the evening.

The Society welcomes beginners and prospective members to these sessions. If you have a telescope, take it along!

If you would like to attend this event, please get in touch with the Society’s Secretary for more details, including information about the exact location and start time which varies throughout the year.

Please note that this has already taken place on 01/01/2023
