Observatory Opening Times

Following each Lecture meeting (usually on the first Friday of each month) tea and biscuits are served in the Playfair Building and the Telescopes and Library are available for use.

The Society's Council meets regularly (usually on the last Friday of the month) and the Telescopes and Library are available for use following this. Barring extremely urgent business, Council Meetings will finish by 21:00.

On other Fridays, the Observatory will be open from 20:00 until about 22:00. Members may wish to make use of the Library on these nights or just come up for a chat about astronomy with the duty Council Member. When the weather is favourable we hope to have as many members and friends as possible come to make use of the telescopes.
