The University observatory is home to a range of telescopes for both teaching and research use. We offer observing sessions to our Undergraduate students who are able to use our two Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes, of 40-cm and 25-cm diameter, for visual observations and direct imaging with CCD cameras. The observatory also houses the James Gregory Telescope, a 0.94 m (37 inch) reflector of Schmidt-Cassegrain design, which is fitted with a research quality CCD camera for direct imaging, including the ability to monitor the brightness variations of stars, active galaxies, transiting planets, etc. The James Gregory Telescope is currently the largest operational optical telescope in the United Kingdom.
