Astronomy Club

Our school has a research grade 0.36 metre carbon truss Ritchey Chretien robotic telescope with a state of the art CCD imaging system. The telescope and observatory building are still under construction. The Astronomy club is involved in the management of the observatory project and once complete in early 2016, we will begin imaging galaxies, searching for comets and minor planets and photographing our solar system.

The group is open to all students and meets once a week at lunchtime.
