About the Mid-Kent Astronomical Society (MKAS)
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.
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 free advice on what you need and how you can progress in astronomy. Also, check out The Guide on this website: a resource designed for beginners.
