Get help with your telescope

If you’ve recently purchased a telescope and are having difficulties do not fear as you are not alone! Our team of astronomers are on hand to assist and can help with your telescope and advise how to get over any initial hurdles!

To request assistance please complete the form below. Your details will be forwarded on to an astronomer who is available based upon your preferred dates and they will contact you to agree a time. You’ll be invited to communicate with your astronomer directly, for example by phone, video call or Zoom meeting. Whilst of course we’d love to help you in person we have managed to help a number of people “virtually” this way!

Go Stargazing does not charge for this service, we ask that you agree any fees directly with the astronomer who helps you. As a guide you might set aside 30 minutes to an hour and consider budgeting between £10 and £20.

Clear skies!
