The facility provides two observation domes (one for deep sky viewing, one with the capacity for solar viewing – which can be used during the day), and a warm room, to house computer and camera equipment, and where we also hold talks and workshops.

Our vision is for the Observatory to be a centre of learning and exploration of our dark skies, for all ages, for our resident community and our visitors. As an aspiring centre of excellence located in the heart of our unique and protected environment – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) as well as a designated Dark Sky Discovery Zone – we hope to boost rural tourism by encouraging a brand new set of 'astro-tourists' to Scilly. Our unpolluted dark skies offer fantastic opportunities for stargazing and exploring space, and we hope to share this wonder of our natural environment with many more people.
