ALL LDAS events and meetings are postponed until further notice due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Please keep an eye on this website and our Facebook page for updates as to when we will resume our activities.
Whatever the level of your interest in astronomy, welcome to Letchworth & District Astronomical Society.
LDAS is based in Letchworth, in Hertfordshire. We are a thriving society and have over a hundred members. We have people who are just beginners right through to observers with decades of experience. We have an observatory at Standalone Farm in Letchworth, and quite a few members have their own observatories too. We love to see new people come along, whatever their level of knowledge, and all are made most welcome. We hold regular meetings, star parties and other events for members and the public alike.
We can provide advice on telescopes, eyepieces, cameras or anything else you might need to satisfy your interest, just come along and ask.
We are also more than happy to present talks to clubs, schools and other organisations, and for them to visit our observatory. Talks and visits are free although donations to the society are gratefully accepted.
We invite everyone to join in our events, whenever and wherever they happen!
