    The nights are drawing in and it's time to dust off your telescopes. Come and join us on the observatory lawn for some good old fashioned star gazing

The CAA team will give you a guided tour of the night sky, picking out a number of objects of interest via the array of telescopes which all link up to the large screens so that everyone in attendance can see at once.

We will have a selection of telescopes with different types of cameras linked up to stream detailed views of the moon and planets.


Along with several wider fields-of-view idea for seeking out Galaxies, Star Clusters and Nebulae.


In the event of cloud, we may give a short talk or planetarium style show of what we would have chased down for you if it had been clear!


and it is all absolutely free with no need to book unless you are bringing a large group of more than six, in which case it's best to speak to someone about it first!

To view, the event live go to the IoA's website and find the link to the live youtube event CLICK HERE
