Got a telescope but not sure how to get the best out of it? Want to use a pair of binoculars to look at the night sky but don’t know where to start? Well Guildford Astronomical Society is here to help.

Guildford Astronomical Society invites you to bring your telescope or binoculars for a:

Telescope Workshop
at
Newlands Corner
on
Saturday, 16th August 2014

From 4pm – 8pm.

Society experts will give you advice on how best to setup, use and maintain your telescope and, when the sky has darkened, will give you a guided tour around the night sky using your own equipment.

There will be a short, informative talk in the Visitor Centre and, if the weather is unhelpful, it will also host the telescope workshop as far as space will allow.

The advice is free, no booking is required and all ages are welcome. Wrap up warm and bring wellies in case the field is muddy. Hot drinks will be available to purchase.
