Astronomy workshop in south Gran Canaria. This takes place at a suitable point to observe stars. There will be a talk on astronomy, on the telescope workings, and some basics to read the sky. Then a powerful 16'' mirror diameter telescope will be mounted to watch some of the most remarkable celestial objects of that night. Transport from Playa del Ingles, Maspalomas, Puertorico, Mogan etc. For booking details please follow the link to astroGC website.

Gauthier was very knowledgeable and clearly very passionate about astronomy. The trip was well planned, thoroughly entertaining and the picture produced was very high quality. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone travelling to south of Gran Canaria.

As someone whose knowledge of the sky at night was not much more than ‘Red sky at night shepherds delight’ this proved to be both a very enjoyable and a very worthwhile outing. The slide presentation on the night-time sky prior to using the telescopes...More
