Telescope evening

Mansfield and Sutton Astronomical Society is holding a ‘bring your own telescope’ evening tonight at the Sherwood Observatory, Coxmoor Road, Sutton.

A spokesman said: “If you had a telescope for Christmas, or even have an old one at the back of a cupboard, and you’re not sure how to set it up then you’re welcome to bring it along to the observatory and we’ll try to help you.

“Please bring any instructions, fittings, parts etc. that came with it.”

The event starts at 7.30pm. Admission is free, but donations are welcome and appreciated.
