Telescope Clinic at Herstmonceux

Telescope Clinic at Herstmonceux

Saturday 23rd March 2019 from 14:00pm to 20:00pm

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).

Please note that this event has already taken place on 23/03/2019

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.
