The observatory houses a 6" Carl Zeiss Coude refractor in excellent condition. This is a professional observatory and is well used by society members. The building also has a meeting room and other facilities. Click here to see some images taken with the 'scope.

Please note physical meetings are cancelled until further notice due to the Covid 19 pandemic. It is hoped to introduce virtual meetings via Zoom in the near future.

The CODY Astronomical Society operates from within the Cody Technology Park in Farnborough in Hampshire, UK, the former site of the Royal Aircraft Establishment, about 30 miles west of London and now home to QinetiQ. Membership is now open to all.  
The society is fortunate to have its own observatory housing a 6" Zeiss Coude refractor and meeting rooms.
