About South West Herts Astronomical Society
http://www.swhas.org

The Society was founded in 1968, with the aims of promoting the science of astronomy and encouraging popular interest in the subject. From September to May regular meetings are held in Rickmansworth, usually on the last Friday of the month. Illustrated talks are given on various aspects of astronomy, presented either by our own members or by visiting speakers. The Society is fortunate to have the use of a planetarium, where a monthly tour of the night sky is conducted.

The Society also owns its own observatory for use by members, and regular weekly observing sessions are held on Saturday nights. The observatory is equipped with an 11” Celestron Schmidt Cassegrain telescope as well as a number of smaller instruments and members are able to use these or their own instruments to observe from the site, which enjoys wide views of the sky with minimal light pollution. A monthly newsletter keeps members informed about the activities of the society and the observing sessions, and also includes summaries of the talks given at the monthly meetings.
