Date & Time
|Date||Friday 21st August, 2015|
|Time||8:00pm to 11:00pm|
Budding Astronomers from 10 to 100 years old will enjoy this event.
This session is specifically aimed at people who have telescopes and want to learn how to use them more effectively, so bring a telescope if you've got one.
If you already have a telescope you can bring it along and get some advice and help on setting it up, and getting the best out of it - usually just before the session begins, or towards the end of the evening. Finally, if you're thinking about buying a telescope we'll also happily guide you through the choices that the market has to offer.
Get set for a night of telescope fun and if you're a bit of a telescope fan then we'll give you a quick tour of the observatory's telescopes. (If you are bringing telescope of your own and plan to bring it then please let us know by emailing email@example.com)
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.
