Don’t know one end of a telescope from the other? Not sure what type of telescope you should buy? Confused by the different types of mounts and eyepieces? If so, this workshop is for you.

In this workshop, we will explain the different types of telescopes and mounts. We will cover some basic telescope theory, and give you a guide on what not to buy. We will also look at the basics of polar alignment, and telescope collimation. The workshop is intended to be as “hands-on” and interactive as possible, and you are welcome to ask as many questions as you like to our very knowledgeable presenters.

This workshop will be held in Mycenae House, Blackheath. Mycenae House is located in Mycenae Road just off Westcombe Park Road in Blackheath, SE3. It is close to the Blackheath Standard shops and buses. There is a café selling hot drinks and snacks located on the ground floor.

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO MEMBERS OF THE FLAMSTEED ASTRONOMY SOCIETY ONLY.

Please do not book a place on this event if you are not a member of the society. Your booking will be cancelled if your name does not appear on our membership database.
