Part of the 2019 St Andrews Photography Festival.
The University Observatory is home to a range of telescopes, including the magnificent James Gregory Telescope, the largest in Scotland. The "JGT" is a homegrown telescope, built and designed in St Andrews, that has served astronomers and students for more than half a century. Our tour of the observatory will include a full demonstration of the JGT, including observations of a nebula, if the sky is clear. Observatory Director Aleks Scholz will lead through the tour and talk about the life of an astronomer in St Andrews.
