Stonehaugh, Hexham, NE48 3DZ, North East
Have you always fancied trying a spot of stargazing but just couldn’t get to grips with the jargon.
Uncertain what type of telescope to buy; refractor, reflector, manual or computerised.
Or do you own a telescope and aren’t sure where to point it.
We’ll translate the jargon and point you in the right direction.
All this under the largest expanse of protected dark skies in Europe. What could be better?
- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.
- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
