Family Telescope Clinic 2019 Specifically for adults accompanied by children. Ideal workshop to gain friendly support from local astronomy enthusiasts 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).
Prior booking required.
