Observatory Visit

About 35 members toured the E.C. Carr Astronomical Observatory in The Blue Mountains on the pre selected rain date  on Friday May 13th. A power point presentation by Ian Wheelband, a volunteer member of the Observatory was presented and enjoyed by those in attendance. There was a window of opportunity for the group to use the 14” telescope located in a building with a retractable roof enabling participants to view the night sky and have questions answered by very knowledgeable volunteers.. There was also an opportunity to use a variety of telescopes provided by members. The challenging weather conditions did not detract from the enjoyment and educational opportunity for all who participated. It was a exceptional and unique evening. The observatory operates under the auspice of The Royal Astronomical Society.
