Members of the CAS carry out observations at both The Croydon Astronomical Society Observatory at Kenley as well as a wide range of locations both near Light Polluted Croydon, other parts of the UK and abroad.
In addition to visual observing members record their observations on a variety of instruments including film cameras, CCDs, Standard Digital Cameras and Video.
The following are some ideas for events and objects to observe. The lists also contains both short term & longer projects that may be of interest to members & others. If you take part in these projects let us know via Altair_B. Your results can be presented at our Annual Exhibition Meeting.
If you are just starting in astronomy and are looking for an observing project there are some ideas in a short talk 'Astronomy4U' I gave to the CAS in February 2005. A copy of the presentation in PDF format can be downloaded here.
New Projects or events will be added to the top of the list & will be removed after the event has happened.
More details of our observatory can be found here.
