Basic Astronomy Courses

"The Night Sky" Evening Course

Our non-accredited basic astronomy course is designed for people new to the hobby or those who would like to broaden their knowledge about the night sky and its treasures.

The course is run by members of MSAS and covers various aspects of basic astronomy over a 6-week period, twice a year beginning in February and October. Each week will cover a different topic and, weather permitting, will include some night sky viewing through our 24” Newtonian Telescope or some of our other smaller telescopes.

Further details, including topics covered, times and prices can be found in this Course Information document.

The next course enrols on the 9th February but places are limited. To reserve your place, register an interest in future courses, or for more information, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
