This is an informal course and is first and foremost intended to be fun and as flexible as possible regarding the level of the content. We strongly believe astronomy and science in general should be as accessible as possible for everyone.
Lots of people get telescopes as gifts but never learn how to use them properly, feel free to bring along any equipment you have and we will show you how to get the best out of it.
During the evening observing sessions, if the sky is clear, remember that it can be very cold so please make sure you pack appropriate winter clothing.
To make the most of the clear sky (if we do get them!) the evening observing sessions can of course be extended. Both James and Steven the course leaders are passionate about everything to do with the night sky and will be spending a considerable amount of their nights on Coll looking up.
