Coming Soon: Our 80cm diameter New Reflector!

UCLO provides the premier teaching facilities in the UK for observational astronomy, and we are committed to continuing to give our students the best possible training so they are well placed to become world-class astronomers and astrophysicists.

The new 80cm diameter telescope.

New Telescope

Our New Large Telescope (80cm reflector) is currently being built thanks to many donations which occurred in the last 14 years. Its manufacturers, ASTELCO, are in the process of testing mirrors and mechanics and will install it on site in February 2019.

We are in the process of updating this page... thanks for your patience!

Our Allen telescope is gone...

Allen going...

The Allen telescope which has faithfully and dutyfully served the UCLO students since its installation in 1974, has now been rehoused in South Germany... more details on its journey to follow.
