This is a rare opportunity to view and photograph the sun safely through a selection of telescopes. Lilian Hobbs LRPS will be opening up her two observatories at her home to a maximum of 4 attendees.

You will be given the opportunity to observe the sun using very special astronomical filters. White light filters enalble you to  photograph sunspots and Hydrogen Alpha filters allow you to see the eruptions on the sun, although these are difficult to photograph but easy to see with the eye. 

Telescope adapters will be available for Nikon, Canon and Sony NEX cameras, if you use another brand please contact Lilian in advance
