Got a telescope but have no idea how to use it?
This introductory session will give you the tools and knowledge to get started!
We will be looking at different telescopes (reflective and refractive), types of lenses, how telescopes differ and what objects in the sky are best to look at. The evening includes an introductory session at Space Place with Wellington Astronomical Society and a hands-on workshop in the Wellington Botanic Garden.
If you buy a telescope from Space Place between 1 November 2016 and 3 February 2017, you’ll receive a 50% discount on the ticket price.
There are limited spaces available, so get in quickly!
Rain date is Friday 10th of February – participants must be available for both dates and be aged 16 years or over.
