WELCOME TO THE MID-KENT ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY
As Kent's leading Astronomy society, MKAS provides for amateurs and enthusiasts to follow and share in all things Astronomical. A very friendly and helpful group, supporting its members and visitors with stimulating and interesting talks, events, and giving free advice on how to do Astronomy and use equipment.
MKAS has over 100 members of all levels of expertise, and runs an Observatory housing a 14 inch telescope, which one day will be upgraded to a 20 inch research grade telescope that is currently being prepared.
So, if you don't know how to set up your Telescope, come along and be shown at the Telescope Workshops. If you are just starting in Astronomy, come along to a meeting and get advice on what you need and how you can progress. Also, check out The Guide on this website: a resource designed for beginners.
And for the more advanced, why not join in on one of the projects?
