Deep Sky Section

The Deep Sky Section aims to encourage and promote observing  deep sky objects; star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, double stars. We welcome newcomers and experienced observers and can provide help on methods, activities and resources for visual observing, imaging and science projects. We coordinate a number of observing programmes for all abilities and equipment, and work with other sections and groups to further our aims.
