Telescope Clinic

About

Do you have a telescope but haven't quite got to the bottom of how it works? Do you need some friendly advice? Have you just been given a telescope as a present or is one still sitting in its box gathering dust? If you would like to learn how to use your telescope properly then this is the course is for you!

This course is a mix of classroom based teaching and practical hands-on teaching outdoors so you can learn how to use your telescope. Members of local Astronomy Societies will guide you through setting up your telescope and getting the best out of it. Weather permitting they will also start you on your way to viewing the night sky. Spring and Autumn dates available.

On this course local astronomy enthusiasts will be able to guide you through your telescope and help you set it up ready to begin your observations. The day will begin with an introduction about telescopes, the terminology used and the parts that make up the telescope and how they work. This will be followed by small group sessions when you get really hands-on. The early evening will be dedicated to looking through your telescope and getting to grips with what your telescope is capable of (weather permitting).

Check out more information on the Observatory website (this is adults only). Booking essential
