Telescope Workshop

After the increase in awareness amongst the public for all things astronomy, it’s apparent that stargazing from home is on the rise. However, it can be a bit overwhelming as a beginner. Telescopes or binoculars? How to identify Stars and Planets? How to set up my telescope? How to find dark skies? and where do you start?
Our informed team of Astronomers are here to help get you started with the basics. This workshop is designed to inspire people of all ages, with our fun and interactive learning experience. The session includes how to navigate the night sky and identify the objects, the different types of telescopes, the components of a telescope, and basics on tracking and alignment.
