Telescope Demonstration Night

Telescope Demonstration Night

24 February 2016

The evening will start with the simplest telescopes that would make a good present for a youngster. The talk will then move upwards to the two main telescopes types ‒ refractors and Newtonians ‒ describing their advantages, disadvantages and also giving recommendations of the best that are currently available.

Professor Ian Morison will also give demonstrations setting up the two common telescope mounts, ALT/AZ and Equatorial to overcome a common stumbling block for beginners.
