Southampton Astronomical Society Founded 1924 Our next meeting will be on Thursday, Sept 13th.  This will be our AGM, followed by the John Thompson Memorial Lecture delivered by Dr Lilian Hobbs. Beginners Borrow a Telescope Why rush out and buy a telescope when you can take a Society 'scope home with you?  We've a range of 'scopes available for members to hire, starting at 25p per week!  If you submit an observing report it's free - we'll even teach you to use it!!
