We hold one OPEN NIGHT each month. There is no need to book for this night - just turn up.

Open nights start at sunset and run for a couple of hours, all for the modest cost of $5 each.

We are also open for private bookings. This can be for one, or for a group of 20. The fee structure is $5 per head with a minimum fee of $50. School groups are $4 a head.

The difference between open nights and booked nights is that on open nights you may only get to see a couple of night sky objects.

On booked nights you get to see a lot more,We look at deep sky images as well as any lunar and planetary subjects that are visible on the night.

The operator will take you outside and give a tour of the night sky, using a laser pointer to help you see different things of interest.
