Project Description



We are proud to present our twin observatories! The larger observatory houses our visual and solar set ups. As you enter, you are confronted by our signature telescope, a large 8″ diameter F9 Achromat refractor, mounted on a Mesu 200 mount. Completing the set up, is our gorgeous Victorian looking brass and red Skylight AR101 F15 refractor, (with Televue optics) and a 6″ Hydrogen alpha solarscope,  to view the Sun.

The smaller observatory houses John’s astrophotography equipment. You would be very welcome to see this in action. John would also be very happy in assisting you taking pictures of your own, either with your own equipment outside, or utilising the equipment in the visual room.

Please enquire at the time of your booking for rates.
