Our Publications

The Webb Deep-Sky Society has a wide range of publications on offer.

Our latest publication is the Atlas of Open Star Clusters for which we have a PDF sample of the content for you to download.

We also have a small number of the excellent Willmann-Bell Annals of the Deep Sky Volumes 2–4 available.

Our Annual Meeting

Thank you to everyone that attended our Annual Meeting on Saturday 3 June 2017. It was one of our best attended and most successful in years as a result. We hope you enjoyed yourselves.

The planning for next year will soon be underway, and we'll let you know what we have in store in due course. It would be great to see you all again in 2018.

Bob's in Vulpecula and Capricornus for two pairs of closer doubles this August. Both are still within reach of modest scopes … with a bonus for those that can reach a little deeper.
