New Astronomer’s Group

The New Astronomers Group is a great course for people who have recently purchased or plan to purchase a telescope and would like to learn how to use it. The group also caters for those of us who are have had their telescopes for a while and are interested in talks and presentations on the latest updates in astronomy. If you have a problem with your telescope and need advice with it, please contact us beforehand and bring your scope along with you on the night. Topics we cover include star-hopping the night sky, learning to use your telescope more effectively, astrophotography and other practical areas of astronomy.

ANNOUNCEMENT: We hope to run the next NAG cource in April 2018.

Participants will receive a booklet of information covering all the sessions in which they can take notes.

After the afternoon classroom sessions we will move over to the club’s viewing site. There will be a practical session of how to navigate across the night sky, and afterwards participants will be able to join our club members regular star party and view objects through many different telescopes. The evening session after the classroom session will be dependent upon the weather – we will get a better idea of cloud cover closer to the event. The classroom session will take place rain, hail or shine
