Welcome to the Bishop's University Astronomical Observatory website!
Located on the roof of the Nicolls building on Bishop’s University Campus in the charming borough of Lennoxville, the observatory is a very recent and exciting addition to Bishop's University. The new ASH Dome observatory houses a PlaneWave 17" (f/6.8) Dall-Kirkham corrected optical design telescope which will be used to enrich the undergraduate students’ learning experience and give the graduate students another tool with which to broaden their horizons. The new observatory will not only be used for educational purposes, but will also be open to the public for tours and stellar evenings.
