Get to Know Your Telescope
In addition to a normal evening of astronomy fun, you can bring your own telescope to get some hands-on advice from our astronomers.
Date & Time
|Date||Wednesday 18th October, 2017|
|Time||8:30pm to 10:30pm|
Budding Astronomers from 10 to 100 years old will enjoy this event.
If you have a telescope and want to bring it along then let us know in advance and we'll help you with any problems you might have with it. Or simply bring yourself and a sense of wonder and curiosity.
If you're thinking of buying a telescope or if you've already got one, (and maybe you've hardly had it out of the box) then this is the night for you. With astronomers on hand to help you set up and use your telescope, or use one of ours, you'll be an expert in no time. Bring yours along and get some personal advice from one of our in-house astronomers.
In addition to our usual night of astronomy fun, (and if the skies are clear-an evening of stargazing), we'll give you a detailed tour of the observatory's telescopes & binoculars. Also if you're thinking about buying a telescope we'll also happily guide you through the choices that the market has to offer.
If you have a telescope of your own and plan to bring it then please let us know at your time of booking.
During the winter months the observatory warm room is kept cosy and with hot drinks available all year round; this simply is the best and most comfortable way to be introduced to the dark starry skies of Northumberland and the universe beyond.
As of yet, we're unable to control the weather, so observing the skies can only go ahead if it's clear but you'll be pleased to know that all events go ahead in any weather conditions.
