How to see the Meade in action
While you can see the telescope as part of your visit to the exhibition, it is only ever operated by a technical expert during special star-gazing events or during an organised group tour.
To see the Meade in action, projecting images of the night sky onto screens in the exhibition area, check out our special star-gazing events or get in touch to book a group tour.
We also have a solar telescope for use during the summer months as part of any visit to the exhibition.
The Coronado ST 40/400 PST Personal Solar Telescope OTA is a small, quality telescope which lets you experience the sun, which will show prominences, flares and other surface details of our biggest star.
Our ‘Go-To’ and ‘Point-To’ mini-telescopes are available as part of your exhibition visit for a hands-on – and eyes-on! – experience of looking at the sky and the landscape.
