What's NEWZ

 WHAT'S NEWZ

Now keeping you up with what's happening or planning to happen in the near future at the Observatory.

Well they say " things come to those who wait" and that has been true as we have been planning to have a telescope pier installed outside in the circular paved area for a wee while but cost was always dictating that.

With a HUGE THANKS !!!!!!!!

GRACEWORKS DEMOLITION & RECYCLING LTD

in Rangiora

 Paul King owner of Graceworks Demolition & Recycling Ltd in Rangiora has made an awesome donation and we now have a perfectly sized pier to mount another telescope on for hosting groups. In fact 2 ex steel bollards filled with concrete will "grace" the outside of the Observatory and each armed with a telescope atop they will be ready to help show people the heavens.

'GRACEWORKS 1 & 2 ' will be installed over the Summer and be ready for the 2016 season and the 10th Anniversary of the Observatory.
