The Society has a 24 inch (610mm) diameter reflecting telescope, focal length 96 inch (2438mm) f/4, on a bespoke equatorial mount with fork design. Construction of the observatory began in 1981. The observatory is twenty feet in diameter and the domed roof has a retractable slit. The original dome started out life as the uppermost unit of an agricultural silo.
