This course offers a fantastic opportunity to learn how to use your own telescope. It 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 note that for health and safety reasons we can only accommodate a maximum of 2 children for every one adult. Children must be age 8+ and MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times while in The Centre.
- It is essential that you let us know the make and model of your telescope in advance- including the type of mount. This is so that we can inform ESAS and they can then partner you with a member of their team who is the most knowledgeable about your particular telescope. The practical sessions will be conducted in small groups.
- Your telescope must be fully functioning and please ensure batteries are working, and you have spares
- There are breaks during the course for a hot drink and for a hot meal. Please make sure that you let us know your food option (beef lasagne or jacket potato with cheese and / or beans) and whether you have any dietary requirements.
- We recommend that you bring a torch (preferably red light if you have one) and please wear warm clothing and sensible, warm footwear.
- No refund can be issued within 7 days of Telescope Clinic. If you wish to cancel and it is prior to 7 days before the event, there will be a £5 administration charge which will be taken off the refund. £5 administration fee will be charged for transfer to another event.
- Parking is on the parking field at the front of The Centre: You will be informed of alternative parking if our usual grass parking area has had to be closed. If using Sat Nav, please use ‘Wartling Road’ and NOT our postcode.
PLEASE NOTE: we do not cancel events due to poor weather
The Observatory Science Centre reserves the right to cancel an event due to low numbers, in which case an alternative date or full refund would be given.
