Telescope Loans

The SFAA has a number of ‘loaner scopes’ for members.

If you are new to astronomy, need a particular type of scope for an event or are considering changing your telescope but want to try one out before investing, we have a range of scopes that you can borrow for free on a month-to-month basis.

For more information and scope availability, email the loaner scope program at
