REMINDER

  • You will be required to reconfirm your social distancing statement and wear a mask when required.

  • Please bring only torches with RED light to preserve our night visibility.  You could wrap red tape or cellophane over a normal torch.

  • If your telescope needs power, then please ensure it's fully charged or new batteries inserted or 12V adapter to the car or 12V portable power bank.  ***Rechargeable batteries are NOT recommended for astro trackers as their voltage is lower e.g., 1.2V instead of 1.5V for AA ***

  • Finderscope is battery-powered e.g., CR2032 and such so please also bring spare finderscope batteries.

  • If your scope is a Celestron Starsense Explorer, then please install its app (same name) on your mobile phone. The app requires the Unlock Code on a card shipped with your Starsense telescope.

  • Warm Clothes – Highly recommended gloves, beanie and warm jackets and jumpers in cold weather. Layers!

  • We start an hour before Sunset to allow the setup of the scope whilst there’s daylight. The finish time will be around 9:30pm.
