In this one hour tour of the night sky, we will view single stars, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, clusters, shooting stars (maybe) and the Moon . You will also learn how to operate the telescope and point it where you like to possibly discover something new. This introductory tour is designed as an interesting experience rather than an astronomy lecture. We have been doing amateur sky tours since 2012 and can definitely inspire your family's mind. It is for people who have never seen planets before but have been having a lot of questions when they look up. You will be able to take photos through the eyepiece of the telescope, however, nothing will beat seeing it with your eye. The photos on this website are all taken with phone cameras so it is an example of what to expect. Notes If weather is bad on the day then you can reschedule free of charge. What's available to see depends on the day of the year but we've only made dates available on a the calendar where there's great things to see. Visibility of the moon depends on the phase and it is generally best to view the moon when it is not full. All equipment is sanitized before use to be COVID19 safe, and we will be wearing a mask at all times. We recommend up to 8 people in your party to ensure everyone gets enough time to look through the telescope. To book your slot, follow the prompts to pay in full and choose your date. We will then get in touch on Whatsapp in case you need to make any arrangements.
