About Us

LCS is a diverse group of amateurs who enjoy promoting astronomy in the Charleston SC area.  With a wide range of experience in visual observing to CCD imaging, if you have a peculiar desire to know more about astronomy, chances are someone here can help.  We work with several organizations in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties including: The College of Charleston, Local Schools (Public and Private) along with various girl and boy scout troops just to name a few.

Our monthly meetings are the first Thursday of the month with topics balanced to appeal to both beginner and advanced amateur astronomers alike. Monthly meetings include videos, slide shows, lectures, reviews of upcoming celestial events group projects and much more. These meetings are free, and open to the public of all ages.

Each of our club members has their own interests. Some like looking at planets, while others enjoy the challenge of deep sky observing. Some members like telescope making and mirror grinding, while others are into astrophotography and CCD imaging. Whatever your interest in astronomy, there is probably someone else just like you in the club that is more than willing to share his or her experiences.
