The Observatory Science Centre
Herstmonceux, Hailsham, BN27 1RN
Owning a telescope can be both exciting and a little daunting. Setting it up correctly is the key to getting the most out of your night sky viewing but this can often prove challenging for those with little or no previous experience.
For this reason, the Observatory Science Centre are once again running this popular one day clinic where friendly experts will guide you through the set up process for your own telescope and show you how to use it properly.
During the early evening, you will get the opportunity to put what you have learned into practice by observing the night sky through your own telescope (weather permitting).
