Amateur Astronomy in Milton Keynes
Home of the Milton Keynes Deaf Astronomical Society (MKDAS), aims to provide a forum
for the discussion throughout the years, we have helped many to gain
and grow an interest in Astronomy.
MKDAS is a thriving deaf society located in Emberton, near Olney.

Now we are a friendly group, with members of all ages and abilities, both followed by
practical observing when we have talks, slide shows and practical demonstrations, workshops and observing sessions.

**NEW***   MKDAS & UK Astronomy   *** NEW***
The two mainstream societies are
Milton Keynes Deaf Astronomical Society and UK Astronomy
could provide some telescopes which are used on meeting nights
and at public stargazing to demonstrate and teach astronomy to the people of
Milton Keynes, Olney, Emberton and the surrounding areas.
