  Reeth Informal

 Astronomy Group

covering the Northern Yorkshire Dales

Reeth Informal Astronomy Group are a small and friendly group which started following a local Skill-share meeting in April 2013.

Our members  are mostly based in the Northern Yorkshire Dales, in particular Arkengarthdale, Swaledale & Wensleydale, but we welcome people from further afield if they wish to join us.

The group covers every level from absolute beginners with no equipment whatsoever to those with a modest amount of experience of using small to medium sized telescopes. Our common aim is to learn together, and everyone is welcome.


We have a regular  meeting on the second Monday of the month at Unit 14, the Dales Centre, Reeth, DL11 6SP to discuss current astronomy news, exchange ideas and expertise and to observe the night sky.

We would like to thank Mike and Meg Evershed for hosting our meetings at Unit 14

Our February meeting will be on Monday 12th February 2018.

As part of the National Park Dark Skies Festival this will be an open meeting on “Photographing the Night Sky”, and will take place in the meeting room of Reeth Evangelical Congregational Church, DL11 6T  from 7.00pm to 9.00pm. Group members will share tips and techniques for beginners upwards using a wide range of cameras from phones and webcams to DSLRs and up. If the sky is clear we will end the evening outside taking pictures of the night sky from Reeth Green. So bring your camera if you have one, although that is not essential to enjoy the evening. All are welcome and admission is free (but donations would be welcome to help with Group expenses).

If you would like to come along please phone: 01748 884926
