Join us at Kendal Castle for a high-tech stargazing session for absolute beginners with astronomer and photographer Gary Lintern. We’ll use Stellina Smart Telescopes to observe objects in the night sky, so you can take photographs with your phone. It is that simple. If you can open an app and connect to WiFi, you can operate these.

This event is part of the Cumbria Dark Skies Festival – Autumn 2022.

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
