Public Viewing FAQ’s

When can I visit the Observatory?

Members of the public need to either book a place on one of our Public Viewing nights or make a group booking. We also run occasional open days for which you don’t need to book.

There is great demand to come look through the telescopes and we are constantly looking at ways to satisfy this demand without overloading our wonderful volunteers.

MBO membership is $50 and is cost effective if you think you will come back more than once. There is also no waiting list for membership.

 

 

How does membership work?

If you wish to join MBO you have a number of different options depending on the size of your family:

-Single membership (suitable for one adult)

-Family of two (suitable for two related people over the age of 15)

-Family of three (suitable for three related people over the age of 15)

When you purchase one of these options, each family member can have their login access to the MBO website.

In addition you can add children under the age of 15 to any of the above memberships. Children under 15 are free but should be named on your membership.

Do you charge for parking?
