Do more Astrophotography with HantsAstro

Hampshire Astronomy shines with HantsAstro

Now approaching its 10th year, HantsAstro has become the largest Astronomy Group in South England, and one of the biggest in the UK

HantsAstro exists to provide the best way to get in practical astronomy or astro-imaging, with regular classes to help you do more.

We run evenings for observing/imaging across the county, with Free Public Events and members 'StarCamps' throughout the year.

The best upgrade for your telescope is simply a Dark Sky Site.

There's no members' only areas, no committees or stuffy constitutions here! It's all simply based around you, the Sky and your telescope, whatever your experience. We're over a generation younger than your 'traditional' astronomy society and are very active too, with over 300 members.

Our focus is hands-on practical observing and astro-imaging the night sky, as we have a unique and flexible observing programme throughout the year. We meet when it's clear. It's that simple!

We have access to some of the latest telescope equipment available. Or you can bring and use your own 'scope as most of our members do. It's a great way to discover astronomy with like-minded people and learn more about the night sky.

We operate up to three active sites at a time for the 2016-17 season: Our premium site BUTSER ANCIENT FARM where we meet fortnightly, normally during the weekend, weather permitting and BUTSER HILL, Coney Acres (or QECP Visitor Centre) once a month. Access to any of these to sites require an annual pass for just £18.

Why not sharpen up your skills to get even more from your hobby with our new Astronomy Classes? They are great for helping you get to grips with your new telescope or save money on buying a new one. Sharpen up your skills in astro-imaging and image-processing. They start from £10 and you get a CD or DVD packed full of astronomy software. They now run on Sundays, so you can do both the Intro Class and a Part 1 Astro-imaging in one day to fast-track your way into astro-photography.

Our very active and free Facebook Group of over 600 astronomers is another great source of information too! You can see what we're up to on a daily basis from meets to the best images our members can muster.

HantsAstro - We really make Hampshire Astronomy Shine.
