It’s a common complaint among first-time telescope owners: “I’ve got this new telescope and I can’t see a thing through it”. The aim of this Astro Café is to help you get the most out of your new telescope.

The popular How to Use a Telescope Astro Café is back, again via Zoom breakout rooms. Experts from the RASC will help you how to make the most out of your telescope. Discover how to properly set up your telescope, how to find objects in the sky, what accessories would be useful to you and how to take care of your telescope.
