Logging On

Members require an e-mail address to log on to the advanced facilities of this website. Where households share the same e-mail address, only one username is possible.


Don’t forget to tell us if  your e-mail address changes. E-mail is our primary means of direct communication with all our members. Please contact us with your new details at


In the event of a doubtful weather forecast, events may be either cancelled, postponed or brought forward. If an event is in doubt, before setting out, members should check both here and our social media pages.

Members must contact John Rombi to reserve a place before travelling. Members attending must comply with strict social distancing and other public health requirements. Masks are preferred.

Stargard sessions are normally scheduled for Saturdays, because we recognise the need of members who may have weekday jobs to go to. In the event of poor conditions, Stargard sessions will be postponed or even brought forward and may be held on any day. See also our Observing page and Field Etiquette page.
