Have you got a brand new telescope? Are you dusting off an antique telescope from the attic?
Many people have a telescope but don’t know how to use it. An adequately set up telescope will open the sky for you to learn and explore. Our evening workshop is here to help you understand how to get the most from your stargazing.
Join the team from the Edenbridge and District Astronomers to get your telescope set up and ready to observe the night sky and find out what you can see this year.
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.
