REGISTER IN Events

We have a curriculum to support beginners who wish to get involved with the practical aspects of astronomy i.e. telescopes etc. It consists of an initial Q&A zoom session to cover the basics of astronomy and telescopes and then a field session to put that into practice. The field session is limited to 10 telescopes so that each person gets the support they need from a NSAS instructor. For more information, and to reserve your booking please refer https://nsas.org.au/beginners-night-in-the-field.
