Our Observatory and Dome

Thanks to the efforts of our project engineer John Anderson, and a group of keen supporters, we were delighted to hold the official opening event on 21st June 2014 (see photo gallery web page). The event was a tremendous success, supported by almost 200 people and helping to raise further funds for the project.

The surrounding fence provides security and a welcome barrier to wind chill on cold nights and the enclosure is complete with a low maintenance astro-turf base.

A large shed acts as "mission control" with solar panel power and brewing facilities!
 
Guests are welcome to bring their own telescopes to use on site. We also have facilities for you to take photos through our telescopes.
