Observatory

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.

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. Membership is open to current employees (or retirees) on the Cody Technology park in Farnborough, site of QinetiQ. In addition the society has been given approval to offer membership to a limited number of the general public. The society is fortunate to have its own observatory housing a 6" Zeiss Coude refractor and meeting rooms.

 

Meetings

Are held at our own Observatory &deradome.jpg (25151 bytes) in the Whittle lecture theatre. Meetings are typically held monthly, ranging from talks on a variety of topics (usually by an external speaker) to observing evenings.
