Visit the OST

Of course, the OST can be visited. We welcome students and everyone who is interested in Astronomy.

  • age-appropriate talks with the right degree of information on specific astrophysical topics as well as astrophysics in general
    • either in our seminar room or the dome
    • optional: presentation and explanation of our instruments and the available technology
    • optional: clarification of the astronomical dimension with the help of models
  • guided tours and telescope demonstrations
    • introducing the basic principle of telescopes and astronomical observations
  • observations of the Sun (depends on the weather conditions)
  • night observations of a variety of objects (depends on the visibility and the weather conditions)
  • astrophotography with our CCD cameras or with our/your DSLR camera (a T2 adapter is required, we only have one for Canon cameras)
