Join the team from Salford Astronomical Society at their The Chaseley Field Observatory for this free event which includes demonstrations on various scopes from beginner to professional set ups showing you that there are still plenty of targets out there you can observe and image such as, The Moon, Planets and the brighter Deep Space Objects such as our closest neighbouring Galaxy M31 Andromeda! We will also have our main 18.5 inch Tracking Newtonian Telescope in use showing a live view of the Moon and Saturn.
