OpticsCentral Annual Astronomy Night 2018

Our Open Night is back once again for ONE NIGHT ONLY. Every year, we get more and more visitors joining our family open nights to bask under the stars and explore the skies. You can come meet our OpticsCentral team, fellow astronomy lovers, hang out with your family and friends in an open-to-public astronomy night. Compared to other years, we're bringing 2x the telescopes, 2x the binoculars and a larger range of MASSIVE dobsonian and computerised telescopes. 

Win a computerised telescope on us!

This year, we're going to go BIG. BIG and COMPUTERISED. And we're making it a bit more fun. 

We're running our first-ever astrophotography competition  ON THE NIGHT to get everyone into the astronomy mood. No, it's not hard to win, and no you don't need to have any special skills! Use your smartphone with a Saxon Scopepix Smartphone Adapter, and snap the best astronomy shot of the Moon or the planets taken on the night and submit it to our staff through Facebook. Only restriction is.... you have to take it on the night and you must 'Like' us on Facebook to redeem the prize!

The best shot wins a COMPUTERISED SCOPE (Saxon 1026 Computerised Telescope - RRP. $938.95) It's that easy!
