Do you have a telescope that you do not really know how to use? Or would you simply like to get more out of the equipment you have? Join us to ‘tame your telescope’. Numbers are restricted to 10 people (everyone present must have a ticket).

There will be two trainers: Gary Lintern (experienced astrophotographer and the Chair of the North Pennines Astronomy Society) and Andy Gray (science education consultant, experienced astronomer and deep sky astrophotographer).

Now is the time to finally learn what that equipment you have can do, and to enjoy the rewarding hobby of astronomy. Wrap up warm and bring a red light torch (if you have one).

Booking: Pre-booking essential via Eventbrite

Cost: £25 + Eventbrite booking fee (£1 discount for members of the North Pennines Observatory – Supporting, Corporate or members of the North Pennines Astronomy Society)
