51.29663° North 1.053315° EastThe Centre for Astrophysics and Planetary Science has obtained funding from the University of Kent to refurbish and update the existing observatory into a fully automised system to be used in teaching, outreach and research.
Baader Planetarium has supplied us with the new observatory. This includes a 17" Astrograph from Plane Wave Instruments with a 4k x 4k CCD and a BVRIH-alpha filter set as well as a 90 frames per second camera. The new dome and telescope have now been installed and we have started with regular observing.
