Hello and welcome to the new website for the Matlock and Darley Dale observing group otherwise known and MADDOGs! This group was first discussed at the Northwest Astronomy Festival in October 2014 and had its first meeting in December 2014. The group came about because of a recognition that there were many people in the area who had a keen interest in Astronomy and working together could share knowledge and improve what they got out of the hobby. We plan to have meetings around the first Monday of the month, we use the Plough Inn at Darley Dale as our meeting location. We do not have a membership fee but any donation towards the cost of the hire of equipment and rooms on the night are gratefully received. If you have any questions or would like more information then please contact us here and we will be please to get back to you.
Also drop us a note if you would like to be added to a mailing list where we will let you know of new events, changed times or dates for existing events or any other astronomy news. We can also be found on Facebook here
Thanks for your interest in this group, we hope you will come to join us at a future meeting.
