Looking for Astronomy club near Harwich to Re-light my Fire

Recommended Posts

Hi all 

Any clubs in the Harwich Essex Area?

I,ve been into Astronomy for  about  5 or 6 years  in an on off type of way, last year i started to find myself getting a  little bit despondent with my observing. seem to be looking at the same old stuff and finding it hard to motivate my self to just get out there. i'm in a lucky position to have the space for an observatory and i'm in the process of re designing and building a new roll back unit. i think what i need is a boost and i think the way to do that is to join a club or something . Any suggestions would be greatly received.

Thanks

Graham

There are many clubs in your nation. This link will help you find one close to where you're located:

Hope this helps you. In the meantime, don't pressure yourself. You're into this for fun, and for learning. The beauty of this is the way 'fun' & 'learning' are what makes it fun, and the learning is the reward for having fun!

Working in Cosmic-Symmetry,

Dave

Clacton is your nearest http://www.clactonastronomy.co.uk/ And there's a monthly stargazing event just the other side of Colchester at Abberton Reservoir http://www.essexwt.org.uk/events/2017/09/30/stargazing?instance=0 organised by North Essex Astronomical Society. They also have a regular stargazing event at Great Notley and a club meet just off the A12 at Rivenhall End https://northessexastro.wordpress.com/ They are more of a trek for you.

If you fancy an excursion into Suffolk, there's the Orwell Astronomical Society near Ipswich http://www.oasi.org.uk/index.php

Apologies for butting in on this thread but I wanted to thank you for the details above. I am in Manningtree, North Essex and due to work commitments it is difficult to get to some of the 'local' clubs in the evenings but the OASI in Ipswich is a great opportunity to participate with other astronomers.

Cheers and a Happy New Year.
