  • Members must contact John Rombi to reserve a place before travelling to Stargard.

    Members are reminded to maintain strict social distancing. Masks are preferred.

  • In the event of poor conditions, Stargard sessions will be postponed or even brought forward. Before travelling, members should check this page and the Facebook page for updates. See also our Observing page and Field Etiquette page.

  • *Time Key for observing sessions: SS = sunset; MS = Moonset; MR = Moonrise
