The observatory located in Újszeged was built by the Szeged Observatory Foundation more than twenty years ago. In the observatory recently renewed a 40 cm Newtonian telescope (adjustable cupola, electrical control, SBIG ST-7 CCD camera) serves the purpose of scientific research, while amateur astronomers can study the secrets of the sky by using smaller, lens telescopes. It is open to public every Friday evening. Until dark astronomy and space research lessons illustrated by computer pictures and animations await visitors. On clear-sky days the observatory offers telescope shows and laser stick star sign presentations.
Open: Every Friday in summer: 7 pm-10 pm, in winter: 6 pm-9 pm For groups, we are open if registrated in advance for the rest of the week.
Closed: August, December, January and February. But for groups it can be visited during these months as well with registration in advance.
