This is a great fun and social stargazing night where you can meet up with other members and make new friends with others who share a love of astronomy and the night sky. You'll learn some astronomy along the way!
Non-members are always welcome to join our activities and meet our friendly community of astronomy and stargazing lovers!
WHO IS SUITED TO THIS CLASS?
You have telescope but are not sure how to use it properly.
Members who have been using their telescopes for a while and want to enjoy a fun and social night out and, at the same time, find new things to see in the night sky and learn a bit more astronomy along the way.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
We'll all learn some astronomy!
Beginners or anyone with a new telescope, will receive hands on and practical guidance on setting up and using your new equipment. This will kick-start your learning and you might like to join in a second class to further your knowledge.
For those more confident with telescopes, our Astronomy Guides will be challenging you to find new objects in a dark sky! As always there will be help at hand just in case you need it.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR LARGER TELESCOPES:
More complicated telescopes with larger equatorial mounts do require more than one class to get you fully underway. However, this class will certainly get you started on your astronomical journey!
This event doesn't cover South Celestial Pole Alignment which is an important step in using larger equatorial mounts.
You might prefer to have a Private Lesson instead where you can receive one-on-one tuition.
Non-members are welcome. Bookings are essential.
