How to use your telescope workshop

How to use your telescope workshop

Friday 13th January 2023 from 18:30pm to 20:30pm

Bore Place Country House and Outdoor Education Centre
Chiddingstone, Edenbridge, Kent, TN8 7AR, South East

Did you get a new telescope for Christmas? Are you dusting off an antique ‘scope 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, ready to observe the night sky, and find out what you can see this year.

Please note that this has already taken place on 13/01/2023

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.
