Pads and Run-off Shed

A number of members have their own telescopes and regularly bring them to Seething to observe amongst friends under the dark Seething skies.

The site has 16 concrete pads, 6 at one end and 10 at the other; where members can stand their own telescopes to observe with. The 6 pads at the far end of the site have electricity points allowing for computer controlled telescopes or laptops to be plugged in.

For those members wishing to use their own telescopes for imaging, the Run-Off roof observatory provides a little more protection from the wind than the concrete pads. It too has an electricity supply allowing connection for laptops, telescope drives and imaging systems.


Public Events

We hold a number of special public events with talks, tour, and look through our telescopes!
