Are you ready to take your Stargazing
to the next level?
Our Telescope & Astronomy Classes are a great way to learn more about astronomy and how to use your own telescope to find things in the night sky. It’s also a great chance to fix any issues you have with a telescope and catch up with friends you’ve made along your astronomical journey.
How are these events different to our BYO Telescope Classes? Telescope & Astronomy Classes are predominantly out on the oval. BYO Telescope Classes have an inside presentation where you can learn more about telescopes themselves. At Telescope & Astronomy Classes, there’s a focus on learning what to look at with your telescope.
Non Members are welcome and Members are welcome to buy tickets for guests. It’s a great time for friends and family to share your telescope and enjoy a night out under the stars. They’ll get to experience your hobby and find out why you love it so much!
