Well what a fantastic year we have had with more guests than ever joining us to look at the stars! The autumn season had some fantastic weather with crisp, clear nights and beautiful sunny days. We still feel incredibly blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the world and are excited to see what 2017 brings! Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and we hope to see you soon! Here is a picture we took of the moon earlier this year using our Williams Optics telescope in our observatory.

Horsehead Nebula and Flame Nebula

This is a quick 30 minute exposure of the Horesehead Nebula and the Flame Nebula that we took last night. These nebulae are located within the constellation of Orion and the large star you can see in the image is the left most star of Orion’s Belt. This is a great example of what you can produce in a one hour session in our observatory!

We love this time of year where the winter constellations are beginning to appear and we can get some good observation time in at a reasonable hour! The three major constellations in the night sky during the winter months are Orion, Taurus and Canis Major. Once these are located, highlights such as the Orion Nebula, Sirius in Canis Major and Aldebaran in Taurus can be seen. We’re keen to welcome guests for either week long stays or short breaks to make the most of our beautiful night skies in one of the best astronomy months of the year.
