One day course for families
This course offers a fantastic opportunity to learn how to use your telescope, together as a family. The course is led by East Sussex Astronomical Society (ESAS); a group of very knowledgeable and very keen amateur astronomers who can give you expert guidance and plenty of tips to get the most enjoyment out of your telescope.
Please make sure that your telescope is fully functional before coming on the course because the members of ESAS will not be able to mend any faults. Please also make sure you have functional batteries and spares if your telescope uses them.
Essential Pricing Information
Price is £88 for one child and one adult. Additional adults £58 per person; additional child £28. Please note that for health and safety reasons we can only accommodate a maximum of 2 children for every one adult and children must be 11 and over.
Please wear warm clothing and sensible footwear. Please also bring a torch.
There are breaks during the course for a hot drink and for a hot meal. Please make sure that you let us know which food option you have chosen and whether or not you have any dietary requirements. The food option is either beef lasagne or Jacket Potato with cheese and/or beans.
It is also essential that you let us know the make and model of your telescope including the type of mount. This is so that we can inform ESAS about which telescopes to expect. They can then partner you with a member of their team who is the most knowledgeable about your particular telescope. The practical aspect of this course will be conducted in small groups.
