Would you like to learn how to recognize the constellations and navigate your way around the night sky? Would you like to learn more about cosmology, the solar system or life in the Universe? Are you beyond the beginner stage but are still looking to further your knowledge?
We are running different evening courses in 2020 to try and answer these questions and much more! Intermediate Astronomy, Star Search and Beginners Astronomy (the format of the beginners course is still being finalised for 2020).
A fantastic opportunity to learn how to navigate your way around the night sky. There are two 4 week courses to choose from; one in Spring and one in Autumn.
This six week course builds on introductory courses and does require some prior knowledge of basic astronomy. It explores topics in greater depth and introduces subjects beyond beginner level. The course is taught in one of our domes under the backdrop of a historic telescope.
In addition to the evening courses we are also running one day courses in practical astronomy: Telescope Clinics and Night Sky Photography.
PLEASE NOTE: Night Sky Photography courses have finished for this year but we will be running these courses again in 2020.
An excellent opportunity to learn how to use your telescope properly
