The AAQ owns a number of telescopes and other equipment for member hire to meet a short term need, learn how to use a telescope or try out equipment prior to purchase.
- First contact the Equipment Director who can advise you on the conditions for borrowing, if or when the equipment is available, and provide other information such as how and where to collect the item. A form is available on the page showing the equipment details.
- Hirers will be required to complete an Equipment Hire Form, which outlines your responsibilities.
- The current hire fee for telescopes is $10 per month, with some or all of the hire costs to be paid upfront.
