    May 2017 - QEGS Community Observatory

    The QEGS Community Observatory officially opened on Tuesday 9th May 2017.

    The FPTA have been fundraising for 2 years and the observatory has been built next to the new technology block. The White Peak Astronomical Observing Group have donated a Celestron C14 research grade Schmidt Cassegrain astronomical telescope and mount to use in the observatory with members of the group providing advice and support.

    The Observatory will be used by students and will be open to students from partner schools. In addition the observatory will be open to the community so that anyone with an interest in astronomy can request to attend organised sessions. Although focusing on astronomy, a wide range of space science related activities will be planned to appeal to different interests. These activities, along with some day time observing, will enable full use of the observatory during the day as well as for evening sessions.
