We partnered with Milky-Way.Kiwi to bring you a comprehensive and informative experience. Come and learn from two experienced amateur astronomers who've been operating telescopes collectively for 40 years.
Saturday from 2PM to 6PM + one session of stargazing at night
Are you planning to buy a telescope?
Do you know what to get? What size of telescope to choose? What about the type? Eyepieces? Adaptors? Where to buy them from? All these scary questions and many more will be discussed over our course. At the end of it, you'll be able to walk into a telescope shop or browse the web and know exactly what's best for your money and most importantly, for your observing conditions.
You already own a telescope but, there's no but after our course, you'll know exactly where to start. Where to look. What to do. What's in the sky. What should you consider if you are thinking of taking deep-sky astrophotography?
Take the giant leap, reach for the stars!
Our course runs over one day, Saturday afternoon from 2PM to 6PM and we aim to include a stargazing session on Saturday night if the sky is clear.
We have the most amazing dark sky here in Wairarapa and we encourage everybody to look up.
