South Cheshire Astronomical Society (SCASTRO) is dedicated to providing advice, support and encouragement to those people, in and around the South Cheshire Crewe & Nantwich area who have an interest in astronomy and related sciences and technology. There are no limits associated with age or experience - the only pre-requisite is an enthusiasm for the subject!

We are a community none profit organisation run entirely by unpaid member/enthusiast volunteers.
