Sunset Physics Roof

The dome hosts a Meade LX200, a Schimdt-Cassegrain telescope with a 12-inch primary mirror.

Second year Astrophysics students have the opportunity to become familiar with the dome and the telescope thanks to four observation sessions during the Autumn term as part of the assessment for the PH2900 course.

Two third year projects involve working with the telescope, even for students who are not taking an Astrophysics degree.

Students can also organize observation sessions to purely enjoy the starry sky whenever possible, which enable any student in the department to have a look through the telescope.
