Astronomy Event - Telescopes
2nd January 2015
18.30 - 21.00
Did you get a new telescope for Christmas, are thinking of buying one or just fancy seeing what modern telescopes are all about?
Join our resident astronomer, Simon Rowland for an evening to learn all about them at our award winning Dark Sky venue in Northumberland's International Dark Sky Park.
The evening will feature an indoor talk and hands-on demonstration of a number of different telescopes, how they work, the pros and cons of the main types and what you can expect to see through them. There will be an indoor guided tour of the night sky with tips on how to find popular objects. Weather permitting, there will be an opportunity to use some of the telescopes to view the night sky from our observing area.
Guests are encouraged to bring their own equipment if they wish, reminded to dress warmly and to bring a torch.
Prices: Adult £10 Child £7.50 includes our special home made soup and a roll. Refreshments are also available from the Bar. Rooms are also available for guests who want to make a night of it starting at just £20. Booking is recommended.
