Astro Peak Observatory

 

The observatory is based in Morley, Western Australia.

Astronomical Observatory

All manner of objects are viewable from the light polluted suburb including galaxies,
nebulae and many other space objects.


Astronomical Observatory

Using specialized filters, light pollution can be filtered out
leaving the skies appearing dark enough for good visual work.
(though there is no substitute for darks skies).

Astronomical Observatory

Cosmotography is also conducted from the observatory
on film and CCD.

Astronomical Observatory

Astronomical software makes it possible to track all kinds of
man made satellites such as the space station, space shuttles
and any other interesting object.



Other activities such as comet searches or near earth asteroid searches
can all be automated using the observatory's computers. In fact the telescopes
can be accessed and controlled from anywhere in the world (via the internet of course).
