An own observatory for all members!

Partner Wildpark Johannismühle
Wildpark Johannismühle

In cooperation with the Wildpark Johannismühle in Baruth, we built our own observatory with additional telescopic pillars. Under one of the darkest skies in Brandenburg and Germany, we have the best conditions to do observations and astrophotography. As a member, you are allowed to use the club equipment (e.g. a 14” Dobson) for free.
