Telescope Course

Everything you need to know if you want to buy a telescope. Or you have a telescope but you are not sure how to use it.

What to get. What size. What type. What eyepiece. Adaptors. Mounts.  

And where to buy these from!

All these scary decisions you must make before you buy 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.

A 1-day telescope course on Saturday (+ stargazing)!

Telescope Course

What’s in a telescope course?

Are you planning to buy a telescope?

YOU SHOULD NOT PAY A LOT OF MONEY FOR A TELESCOPE THAT DOES NOT SUIT YOU.

or …

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, Saturdays 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.

Once you know how to look at the night sky we discuss about what you can do about it. Activities like light pollution and citizen science could be something that you will be able to contribute after our course.
